In terms of breaking the status quo of the industry, understanding the investor has to be multi-dimensional now. It’s not just about risk tolerance and time horizon.”Zach Conway

“Have a conversation with us. Start with the basics. Maybe start talking about one client. How do you engage that one plane? What is the process? How do you position it? How do you take them through the diagnostic? So, begin with the end in mind, but start at the beginning. You’re not going to be an expert in this stuff on day one.”Michael Conway
