My team has been working hard to serve up a fantastic two minute market briefing each weekday morning on the Alexa platform and we’re getting some nice traction with it. The idea is to tell the story of what happened in market history on each day – hence the name Market Moment – and then relate it to what’s going on now.
One of the most important functions of a financial advisor is to remind people that time passes, markets move forward, and nearly everything that could happen has already happened in one form or another. We don’t use the term “unprecedented” very often around our shop, given how steeped all of our content is in historical facts and figures.
An investor who adds our skill to their daily flash briefing on Alexa is going to become smarter, more informed and less sensitive to the headlines of the day as a result. We believe that educated clients are better clients, and that knowledgable investors do better over long stretches of time.
