In 1998, I didn’t have an email account when I started my career in Financial Services, and the most important tool for my job was a 10-key desk calculator.

Who knows?!?!? But I know it will be way beyond what they can do today, as we figure out how to better harness blockchain, machine learning, AI, V/R and countless other known, and unknown, technology innovations for the client/advisor engagement model and portfolio management capabilities. We have countless opportunities at our fingertips and need to continue challenging the status quo.
