“High-net worth clients’ focus on achieving goals makes financial planning a critical tool for advisors. These clients are looking to compare their portfolio performance relative to their personal financial goals. In addition, there’s a shift towards financial planning that incorporates all modules, as more than half of plans delivered are comprehensive.” – CEB TowerGroup research director, Darrin Courtney
