As we evolve along with wealth managers, you may have noted the new Web address for Wealth Manager in this e-newsletter: WealthManagerWeb.com. Wealth Manager is going digital-only after the July/August issue of the magazine--our last in print. For us, that's very exciting because it means that we will be able to bring both interactive and timely Web-only content: more e-newsletters, Webinars, blogs, podcasts and timely news, as well as the longer-form articles from our expert contributors that you've come to expect. And, of course, going digital is green!
We'll be conducting more of our original research on Top Wealth Managers, Women in Wealth Management, and for the first time, quarterly Pulse Surveys in which our audience of wealth managers will have a say about the questions we ask. (E-mail your suggested questions to me at the address below.) Philip Palaveev will provide analysis of the results of the 2009 Top Wealth Manager survey and the new quarterly Top Wealth Manager Pulse surveys right here on WealthManagerWeb.com. Bob Huebscher will follow asset flows, Gib Watson will focus on what's going on in the separate accounts arena, and we'll have risk management insights from Andrew McElwee.
Another area we will be exploring, and a topic that we hear wealth managers starting to chat about, is how to use social networking platforms and mobile technology as business tools. Wealth Manager is expecting big things from this move to digital, and we hope you will evolve along with us. As always I invite you to send your comments to me at email@example.com.
