Elevating the Client Experience

[Main Ballroom D&E] - Presented by Greg Menefee, Head of Institutional Consulting, TD Ameritrade

We live in the age of information. It’s everywhere to be found. But all that information can become more like white noise to clients. So how do you—as one Advisor in a sea of Advisors—stand out? Branding? Differentiation? Pricing? All important considerations, but these things alone will not create a lasting impression. It’s the client experience that will leave people thinking highly of you and drive brand loyalty … or not.

You will walk away from this session understanding:

  • Why client experience is the right strategy for your firm

  • How to evaluate and elevate your own client experience

  • Which areas within your business have the most opportunity for an enhanced client experience
