Minisode -- The Technology Gap in the Advisory Profession
About This Episode
Financial firms are not growing and not adapting as quickly as businesses in other industries. Slow to employ new technologies, look at client segmentation, and consider new outlets for client growth, the financial industry seems stuck in a bygone era.
About Our Guest
Matt Reiner is determined to address those problems. He is both a CFA and CFP and a partner of Capital Investment Advisors, a $3+ Billion RIA in Atlanta, Georgia. Matt is also the managing partner of Wela Strategies, a smaller RIA that deals with the investment needs of the mass affluent.
After spending years as both a financial manager for individuals and helping to lead these two RIAs, Matt founded Benjamin, an AI fintech company that serves the financial advisor industry. The company was created for advisors by advisors, and Matt used both Capital and Wela as testing grounds for his technology. Benjamin helps hundreds of firms across the country streamline time-consuming tasks and allows for greater client engagement through technology.
