Why Now?

Now is the best time to work with Interactive Financial Advisors as a CARES™ Fiduciary Financial Advisor

Fiduciary Standard is the new normal

The Department of Labor fiduciary rule changes in April 2016 require all who provide retirement investment advice, plan fiduciaries and IRAs to following the fiduciary standard and put clients’ best interest before their profits.

Ensure Your Compliance

Advisors need to get in line with the new fiduciary rules to ensure their business growth for the high-demand sector of retirement planning

Increasing Demand

Consumers have a need now more than ever for trusted, fiduciary advisors who CARE. A 401K isn’t enough, social security won’t fulfill the future needs, and complex options require expert, hands-on planning. Business demand is projected to grow 23% faster than industry average 2014 to 2024, due to aging population and rising life expectancies

Limited Supply

The average age of financial advisers is 51, 43% are older than 55, and only 11% are younger than 35. according to research firm Cerulli Associates. Almost 35% plan to retire in the next 10 years yet there are few in the pipeline to backfill them. Consulting firm Moss Adams estimates that the industry is facing a 200,000 advisor shortfall by 2022 in the U.S.
