Foundations: Becoming the Trusted Advisor to Trusted Advisors

How do you become a trusted advisor to your advisors? With office access becoming increasingly restricted and competition for the advisor’s attention rising, it is critical for a wholesaler to be perceived as a value-added team member. Larry Sinsimer, who has worked with many advisors and sales teams, outlines five strategies for demonstrating value in every meeting and call, including ways of engaging the advisor, understanding what is important to him or her, and creating successful positioning and communications strategies.
