Senior Consultant Bob Tuch Publishes Article “Conducting Effective Meetings with Investment Advisory Clients”

Oyster Consulting Senior Consultant Bob Tuch recently contributed his article, “Conducting Effective Meetings with Investment Advisory Clients” to Practical Compliance & Risk Management for the Securities Industry, a Wolters Kluwer publication.  Client meetings play an important role for financial services firms that provide investment advisory services to their clients. The initial meeting is extremely important for investment advisers because they must reasonably determine that any investment advisory services that are provided are suitable, taking into consideration the client’s financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives, among other things. For providers of ongoing investment advisory services, periodic meetings are also important, since the investment adviser’s fiduciary duty to clients includes the responsibility for providing advice and account monitoring over the course of the adviser-client relationship. Bob’s article focused on how investment advisers can effectively use client meetings to facilitate the delivery of quality investment advisory services.
