For the first time since the summer of 2000, Investment Advisor is changing its design and shifting its focus, presenting a clean, fast-paced approach to the information and analysis you need to be successful. We'd like to welcome you to this exciting new era in IA's history.
In the May issue, our first of the redesign, you'll find a new column by JP Morgan's Susan Hirshman on wealth management; a new department tracking independent broker/dealers edited by Staff Editor Kate McBride; an increase in space devoted to retirement planning, edited by our Washington Bureau Chief, Melanie Waddell; and a monthly Insurance Update.
Our Web site will expand on interviews and reports that we print in the magazine, giving you a deeper look at some of the issues making waves in the industry. Stories from the May issue are available online today.
We've added a monthly guest column, the Expert's Corner, where luminaries like Dan Sullivan of the Strategic Coach and securities lawyer Tom Giachetti will share their expertise.
In an exciting new part of each issue, we'll share with you thoughts and words from the new Investment Advisor Leaders' Council, comprising 12 of the most forward looking and successful advisors in the industry today. The May issue features retirement planning and marketing expert Scott Hanson.
Our new tag line ?? 1/2 the Voice of Independents ?? 1/2 reflects that same ethos, since you're reading this magazine because you are--or strive to be--independent, a reflection of your entrepreneurial and altruistic nature.
