Marketing, Technology Top Advisers’ List of Strategic Focus Points This Year

first_img 3 Technology, Marketing Top List of Strategic Priorities in ‘21Perhaps not surprising after the importance technology played in serving clients during a pandemic, technology enhancements continue to be a strategic goal for firms in 2021. When asked to list their top three goals for next year, improving the use of current technology and leveraging new technologies were among the most cited ambitions.Marketing also remains a top strategic priority, with 34% of surveyed advisors listing “implementing a new marketing plan” as one of their top three goals for the year ahead.

The Gates divorce: Lessons for financial advisers 5 Looking Back: What Advisers Learned from 2020As advisers worked with clients in a year like no other in their careers, lessons centered on two key areas: client service and communication.In an open-ended question, surveyed advisers were asked what the most important lesson was they learned last year. Based on an InvestmentNews Research analysis of the responses, lessons in client service and communication were the top areas where advisers revised their approach.As some of the anonymous write-in answers showed, the lessons in communication varied. For some advisers, it meant communicating to keep clients on track.“It’s extremely important that my clients stay focused on their long-term goals,” one adviser wrote.  “Don’t lose your head over the stock market’s wide swings.”For other advisers, lessons about client service focused on issues that transcended markets.“My focus was wrong – I was not being a good advisor by just focusing on performance and hedging downside,” an adviser wrote.Transamerica Resources, Inc. is an Aegon company and is affiliated with various companies which include, but are not limited to, insurance companies and broker dealers.

As advisers look to the year ahead, firms are largely focused on two strategic priorities: marketing and technology. And as they plot growth strategies for the year ahead, many appear focused on their existing client types, rather than expanding into new client segments.The findings are part of a months-long research project between Transamerica and InvestmentNews Research exploring how adviser business practices have changed in a world shaped by politics and the pandemic. In the final installment of the project, advisers were asked several questions about how they will navigate 2021.A positive for advisers heading into next year: Most expect growth. Fifty-five percent of advisers expect more new business in 2021 compared with the previous three years. Another 37% expect the same amount of new business.The new business won’t come from new places, however. Most advisory firms are focused on growth coming from their core client type or client base. When asked what was most important to their growth in 2021, only 8% said “expanding into new client segments.” Far more advisors placed importance on adding clients similar to their existing base or growing wallet share among current clients.

Waffle House shooting suspect captured after 4 slain

first_imgMetro Nashville Police Department(NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — The suspected gunman in the Waffle House shooting near Nashville, Tennessee, that left four dead was captured Monday afternoon, authorities said.Travis Reinking was taken into custody about 2 p.m., about two hours after police officials said they had received no credible sightings of the suspect since Sunday morning. Police caught him in the wooded area behind where he lives, they said.More than 160 law enforcement officers — including SWAT teams, K-9 units and helicopter crews — had fanned out across the Nashville suburb of Antioch in search of Reinking, who police suspected was armed and dangerous.Police helicopter crews had focused their search from the sky on a wooded area in which Reinking was last seen about 8:30 a.m. Sunday. Officers on the ground had searched a wooded on foot with K-9 units.Prior to Reinking’s capture, there had been no credible sightings of Reinking since a resident saw him about 8:30 a.m. Sunday entering the woods shirtless near an apartment complex where he lived, Don Aaron, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, said.“We have a man who has exhibited significant instability,” Aaron said.Reinking, 29, is suspected to have stolen a BMW Tuesday from a local dealership, Arron said. The suspect went to the dealership in Brentwood in neighboring Williamson County and stole the BMW after he refused a request from a salesman to show his identification, he added.Reinking had somehow obtained a fob for the BMW, got in it and drove away, Aaron said, adding that Brentwood Police spotted the stolen car and gave chase but called off the pursuit when it became too dangerous.The stolen car, which was equipped with GPS, was located at the apartment complex where Reinking lives.Aaron said the fob used in the auto theft was found in Reinking’s apartment when police searched it Sunday.“We don’t know what his plan was. What his intention for taking the BMW car remains to be seen,” Aaron said.He also said that several hours after the Waffle House massacre Sunday, a laptop case containing a card with Reinking’s name written on it was found at a truck stop at Interstate 24 and Old Hickory Boulevard, about 20 miles from area Reinking was last spotted.It’s unclear whether Reinking managed to get that far after the shooting or whether the laptop case was left there before the shooting, Aaron said.Police suspect that Reingold went to the Waffle House in Antioch about 3:19 a.m. Sunday, waited in his gold-colored Chevrolet Silverado pickup for up to four minutes before allegedly commencing with his deadly rampage.The gunman killed two men outside the restaurant before firing through the window, entering the crowded establishment and killing two others. At least four people were injured, including two left in critical condition.Police believe the suspect showed up at the restaurant wearing only a green jacket and nothing on underneath.He fled the business after patron James Shaw Jr., 29, confronted him and took his gun during a tussle, threw it over a counter and forced the gunman outside.Reinking fled the restaurant on foot and, police said, he ran to his apartment at the nearby Discovery at Mountain View apartment complex, where he put on a pair of dark pants.Aaron said Reinking may have also retrieved a handgun from his apartment, where police seized two hunting rifles.Area schools were searched and cleared in time for classes this morning, but the schools were placed on lockout before the capture, meaning no visitors were allowed on campuses. All after-school activities had been canceled out of an abundance of caution.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.Waffle House shooting suspect captured after 4 slainlast_img read more

Rapping cop suspended after filming transphobic video encouraging violence

first_imgdlewis33/iStockBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A police officer in New York has been suspended and an investigation has been launched into his behavior after a video of him rapping transphobic lyrics and encouraging violence was posted and made public on social media. In the video, a man who identifies himself as Officer Robert Sisco, and can be seen wearing a police uniform with a name tag that reads “R. Sisco,” films himself rapping for about a minute on a series of different controversial topics. The officer who works for the New Paltz Police Department in New York proceeds to rap transphobic messages, encourages violence against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and even manages to get in a line about how the coronavirus was sent to the U.S. by China.“Spit facts over feelings because your feelings are irrelevant, there’s only two genders and Trump’s still your president,” the man proclaims before proceeding to rap about the anatomy of men and women. In another verse the officer then says “Hillary is Killary we all know the reason, where those emails at? We should hang her for treason.”A verse toward the end of the video includes “just because I’m a cop it doesn’t mean that I’m bad, but I’d rather use my words than resorting to violence.” The video caused an uproar within the community, according to the Town Board of New Paltz, and was the cause of many complaints, which sparked the town to issue a public statement on the matter. “The following message has been unanimously written and approved by all members of the Town Board,” the statement began. “The Town Board, as Police Commission, has received many complaints and has seen the officer’s video. We are so sorry that the trust of many in our community has been broken and that their safety feels threatened. No one in our town should have to feel that way about our police. The New Paltz Police have initiated an internal investigation and will be working closely with the Police Commission to explore and direct responsive action in this matter, in the meantime we have placed the officer on administrative leave. We are all committed to repairing trust with our New Paltz transgender and LGBTQ+ community members.”The controversy comes not only in the middle of Pride Month which is being celebrated across the country but also at a time when police are receiving increased scrutiny about their behavior following the death of George Floyd on May 25 at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department. New Paltz Police Chief Rob Lucchesi said there is no set timeframe for how long the investigation will take into the officer’s conduct, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Merkel expresses concern over impact of border restrictions on EU trade

first_img“We have to assume there will be very serious consequences for our economy, which is why the free movement of goods is all the more important, because our European single market is based on the division of labor fractured all across Europe,” Merkel said.“It is crucial that goods flow freely,” she added, noting that for example German carmakers heavily depend on supply chains in other EU countries.During today’s videoconference, “all parties said they want to address this problem,” Merkel said, adding that leaders agreed they “will do all they can that the waiting time at the borders be kept to a minimum.”This could be aided, for example, by special lanes for trucks at the borders, she said.Merkel also confirmed that leaders agreed to introduce a 30-day ban on any travel from outside the EU, “with a very few exemptions” such as the United Kingdom and countries in the European Free Trade Association — Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Tuesday it is “crucial” to maintain the free flow of goods despite EU countries closing their borders because of the coronavirus.“At the moment there are a few difficulties,” Merkel told reporters following a videoconference with other EU leaders, mentioning long wait times for freight transporters at some of the bloc’s internal borders.Countries have in past days implemented border checks and travel restrictions inside the EU, with countries from Slovakia to Poland and Germany reimposing controls in a bid to tackle the spiraling coronavirus crisis.last_img read more

EU sanctions senior Russians over Navalny poisoning

first_imgThe European Union on Wednesday imposed sanctions on six senior Russians over the poisoning of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.The assets of Alexander Bortnikov, the head of the Federal Security Service (FSB), will be frozen and he will face a travel ban. Also targeted are Sergei Kiriyenko, first deputy chief of staff in Vladimir Putin’s administration and a former prime minister; Kremlin official Andrei Yarin; deputy ministers of defense Alexei Krivoruchko and Pavel Popov; and Sergei Menyaylo, a presidential envoy to the Siberian Federal District — Navalny collapsed on a flight from the Siberian city of Tomsk.Yarin, the chief of Russia’s Presidential Domestic Policy Directorate, was sanctioned for making Navalny “the target of systematic harassment and repression … due to his prominent role in the political opposition,” according to the EU document setting out the sanctions. Also on the list is the State Scientific Research Institute for Organic Chemistry and Technology, which “before 1994 was involved in the development and production of chemical weapons including the toxic nerve agent now know as ‘Novichok.’”Laboratories in Germany, France and Sweden have all confirmed that Navalny was poisoned with a nerve agent from the Novichok group.Earlier this month, Navalny said he is certain that Putin was behind his poisoning because all officials with the authority to order a Novichok attack are subordinate to the president.On Thursday, Russia said it would no longer negotiate with Australia and the Netherlands about the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, which crashed in Ukraine in 2014, leaving 298 dead, including 193 Dutch citizens.“I’m very disappointed about this. This is a unilateral decision by Russia. It is particularly painful for the relatives [of the MH17 victims] that Russia is now canceling this,” Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said ahead of a European Council summit in Brussels on Thursday.“I’m also surprised about the timing of this announcement,” Rutte said.

5Stars, League signal readiness to back new Italian government under Draghi

first_img“We said we were open to considering whether the conditions are right to join a government, we will decide above all on the basis of the policies,” leader Vito Crimi told reporters after meeting Draghi. The League, which had first called for snap elections — an option Mattarella sought to avoid given the pandemic — also expressed conditional backing. Its leader Matteo Salvini said the party was ready to join a government “that goes to Brussels keeping its head high in the name of the national interest.” Draghi will hold more talks with political parties next week. The center-left Democratic Party and Italia Viva as well as Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia indicated they were ready to back him. Italy has to present its recovery plan to Brussels in April for approval. The two largest parties in Italy’s parliament, the far-right League and the anti-establishment 5Star Movement, have signaled they could support former European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi as the head of a new government. Draghi took up the mission to form a government on Wednesday from President Sergio Mattarella after the previous coalition collapsed over differences regarding Italy’s post-pandemic recovery plan and talks to reestablish it failed. The 5Stars initially rejected the idea of a technocratic government under Draghi, but on Saturday gave conditional support based on a long list of policy demands, Reuters reported. last_img read more

Seniors seek opportunities to serve

first_imgFor seniors networking with representatives from national and international service programs Wednesday night at the Post-Graduate Service Fair, volunteer work after graduation can be more than a “year off.” Michael Hebbeler, director for student leadership and senior transitions at the CSC, said the fair, hosted by the Center for Social Concerns (CSC) in the Joyce Center, offered another option for students looking for jobs from every college. “It’s a full-time job,” Hebbeler said. “It’s a misconception that it’s a year off and you’re kind of volunteering here and there. [The programs] are looking for students in all disciplines, there is accounting work to be done, there’s environmental work to be done, there’s counseling [and] education. Students of all majors should be able to find something that fits their skill set, their passions.” Hebbeler was the conduit between the graduate service world and the student body. He said the fair was primarily for seniors looking for opportunities to serve after graduatioy. “[There are] post-graduate opportunities ranging from health care to education to ministry,” Hebbeler said. “In the programs, [you’re] living in community, living simply, living on a small stipend, but engaged in work that promotes the common good that really carries out the mission of the University in a very direct way.” He said the international and large programs are the most competitive for applicants. The full-time positions range from small stipends to salaries, and from living in community to living alone, he said. “But all of the organizations are focused on work of peace and justice in a very direct way,” Hebbeler said. “We welcome all these programs, There are bigger programs, [such as] Teach for America, [Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE)], Peace Corps, and we also really value the small programs who do very good work in their smaller communities.” He said the fair benefited students looking for a variety of choices. “There’s something for everybody,” he said. You can find your niche, the community you want to live with, the work you want to do, whether you want a large program or a small program.” Volunteers typically commit one to two years to work 40 or more hours per week, Hebbeler said. He said the time spent serving others guides students as they discern their skillsets in the community and in the business world. “Students find themselves,” he said. “They mature, they grow in wisdom, they grow in skill set and they are more marketable for jobs after this or applying to grad school. Oftentimes this experience makes them a better and more competitive applicant. Of course we don’t promote it for the resume, but practically speaking it does help.” The programs intend to help students serve outside of their comfort zone, he said. “In the end, the real intention is students wanting to live out the mission of the University in a direct and fulfilling way, in relationship with other populations that will stretch them,” Hebbeler said. “These are oftentimes not comfortable positions, but because of that they will grow.”last_img read more
