Navigating the landscape of technology solutions for independent advisors can be an intricate endeavor. With a multitude of options, it can be both challenging and time-consuming to determine which technologies will best suit an advisor’s specific needs. However, the process of becoming an independent advisor need not be hindered by these technological considerations. At Cornerstone Planning Group, we’ve done the work for you (and continue to), taking on the task of vetting various tech solutions to equip our partnered advisors with a top-tier tech stack.

The Multitude of Choices

Technology choices for independent advisors are vast. From customer relationship management (CRM) systems to financial planning software and cybersecurity tools, the array of available options can be overwhelming. Each technology comes with its own set of benefits and drawbacks, making it crucial to select the ones that best align with an advisor’s operational needs and client service model.

In theory, this should be a straightforward process. However, the reality is far from it. Distinguishing between the myriad of offerings, assessing their functionalities, and gauging their long-term viability requires significant time and expertise.
