I even took time out to write the world's best (and shortest) guest blog about SEO.
Probably about time now to get back to the real point of this blog: The Wealth Management Industry.
Still with me?
In the upcoming week I’ll have two industry related posts starting off with Scorpio Partnership’s latest Future Wealth Report, a great analysis of the future of the industry (clue is in the don't you know). In the article you will discover exactly what it is that wealthy clients want... No, it's not what you first think it is.
Unlike me, who just goes off on one at regular intervals about the financial industry, Scorpio Partnership actually has data and facts to back it all up, this makes them all kinds of competent and me a big fan. You should be too. They're on Twitter as well, follow them now.
Later on in the week (in under 500 words) I’ll make you an expert on financial law capable of citing actual legal articles and clauses. You will be able to sound both knowledgeable and annoyingly smarty-pants and if you happen to work in the European financial industry, after reading the article, your Chief of Compliance will be putty in your hands.
Allow me to whet your appetite:
Question: What is the crutch all European compliance officers lean on?
Answer: MiFID, the most boring and soul sapping piece of legislation to ever be conjured up. Not to worry, you don’t need to read it all, because I’ve done it for you, several times. I’ll serve you a fresh plate of “L’Essence De MiFID”. I’ll put a bit of an interesting twist on it and as a result the next time you hear a compliance officer tell you “We can’t do this because it’s not MiFID compliant” you can answer “Aaah, not so, I read in the Banker’s Umbrella that according to MiFID article number…”
What I’ll reveal has been used in the real world on a real life compliance officer with a 100% success rate of stunned silence followed by a “Oh, right, okay, yes, you’re correct”.
So stay tuned.
