Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) May 3, 2005
Paladin sponsors http://www.paladinregistry.com, a registration service that documents the credentials of high-quality wealth management professionals and rates them for competency, integrity, and risk. More than 90% of the 425 three, four, and five star advisors in the Registry are independent professionals. Hundreds of investors use PaladinÂs four search engines each month to find, evaluate, and select Registry professionals who provide wealth management services.
Advisor Software, Inc. (http://www.advisorsoftware.com) provides financial professionals and institutions with a state-of-the-art investment proposal system that is based on world-class analytics, modular work flows, and proven application software. ASI software empowers professionals in the Paladin Registry to deliver sophisticated investment presentations that document their proposed investment strategies.
Jack Waymire, founder of Paladin and author of WhoÂs Watching Your Money? The 17 Paladin Principles for Selecting a Financial Advisor, said Âthe Registry solves major problems for investors and high-quality advisors. Investors donÂt know how to determine the quality of financial professionals, so they are prone to picking advisors with the best sales skills versus selecting real experts. On the other hand, the biggest challenge for most advisors is having enough qualified prospects to talk to. Paladin solves both problems with the Registry. The first problem is solved when investors use the service to select high-quality professionals and avoid weak advisors. The second problem is solved when Paladin forwards pre-screened, qualified prospects to the advisors in the Registry.Â Waymire continued, ÂthatÂs where ASI enters the picture. Once advisors are in contact with investors, they still have to win relationships and ASI provides a powerful presentation tool that they can use to propose specific wealth management strategies. The result is prospecting and sales tools that will help advisors win new clients.Â
Andrew Rudd, the CEO and founder of Advisor Software, Inc. stated ÂWe are very pleased to be able to provide access to ASIÂs Client Acquisition Solution through PaladinÂs registry. They have a great offering, and we look forward to working with the advisors on their service.Â
