‘Staying ahead of the curve’; a phrase that has become the new normal as financial advisors from across the world search for new ways to find more ideal clients in a pandemic stricken world.
Beyond the notion of ‘staying ahead of the curve’, what does this concept mean for advisors and how can financial advisors evolve from the traditional bricks-and-mortar setup to not only survive, but thrive in the new world?
The answer? Adopting a digital financial model for your financial practice!
Adopting a Digital Financial Model
Conneqtor founder, Derek Notman recently had the privilege of featuring on the Exponential Era webcast hosted by David Espindola and Michael Wright recently.
The webcast focussed on how adopting a digital financial model allows financial advisors to thrive in a post-COVID world. Since taking his practice virtual in 2013, Derek has been able to:
Establish an incredible life-work balance.
Generate more ideal clients from virtually anywhere in the world.
Increase revenue, while managing risk.
What makes this so possible in a post-COVID world? The consumer is now consuming more virtual content than ever, and feel more comfortable building relationships virtually.
Derek didn’t want to be a slave to his business and believes that every financial advisor should be able to enjoy this reality. Since there was no roadmap for the journey he embarked on in 2013, it took him a while to figure it out. Fast forward to today and Derek is enjoying the spoils of what Conneqtor has to offer and more.
Covid19 has provided a unique opportunity for financial advisors to evolve, in a time when uncertainty is the norm. One thing is certain – we are truly in the age of the virtual financial advisor.
I was privileged enough to have featured on the Morningstar podcast in early April 2020. The first question Drew Carter asked me was ‘How has the Corona Virus affected your practice?’, and I honestly replied that it hasn’t.
The Virtual Advisor System means business as usual
Who knew that the coronavirus was going to be the thing that completely shakes the markets? Needless to say, I have never been busy. Not only have my clients embraced the virtual working model, but more advisors are looking for new ways in which they can continue growing their practice during these crazy times.
Conneqtor provides financial advisors with an opportunity to go 100% virtual. However, as the name of the podcast goes its simple, but not easy! You can only evolve with the Virtual Advisor System if you put in the work. I’ve been virtual for the past 6 years and I still put the work in to make sure that my virtual practice is optimized at all times.
I was forced to embrace a virtual model much earlier than most advisors even think to and the hard work has paid off. Some of the perks include:
Exponential revenue growth.
Drastically lower overheads.
A work life balance that makes happiness the norm.

I hosted this webinar just before most of the world went into complete lockdown. It was incredibly to see so many advisors ready to begin working virtually. The webinar focussed on the challenges we face when clinging onto the working model of the old school advisor, otherwise known as the brick and mortar model.
The Importance of the Virtual Model Today and in The Future
I explored the importance of working virtually completely as well as from a semi-virtual model, with over 100 advisors. We were all able to understanding the benefits of a virtual or semi-virtual model today and for the future.
I created this webinar to introduce the virtual model and the Virtual Advisor System. It was made for financial advisors, by an active financial advisor so that we can succeed in what already is ‘the new world’.
