The CPA as the “Wealth Custodian”
Once fixated on “What Happened”
Now focused on “What’s Coming”
46% of a typical U-HNW family portfolio comprises of complex alternative investments.
60% of the CPAs feel they are not maximizing business opportunities with their wealthy clients.
90% of the CPAs acknowledge difficulty in sourcing new U-HNW clients
You’re face to face with a U-HNW client reviewing recent developments in their financial life. They’ll want to know what happened to this investment or that asset. But more importantly, they’ll want to know what’s coming.
U-HNW families today want more from their accountant they’ve always depended on. They want a “wealth custodian” whose skills they trust and foresight they cherish. AV will equip you to undertake this professional transformation.
Increased focus on alternative investments means that financial advisors now have a less holistic view of U-HNW families’ finances.
That’s good news for accountants seeking to grow their relationship with U-HNW families and enhance the services they can provide them.
