Creating a Growth Plan for Your Practice

Here’s the bad news: 77% of advisors have no defined marketing strategy and only 49% of advisors are confident that they will meet their practice growth goals within the next 12 months.1

The good news: Investing a little time and thought into planning can yield substantial dividends. In fact, 75% of top performing RIA firms have a written strategic plan.2 And firms with a documented ideal client persona & client value proposition attracted 28% more new clients and 45% more new client assets in 2019.3

To help Financial Advisors create a simple and effective strategy for growth, Symmetry has put together a new tool--our Growth Plan Workbook—designed to help you answer the 4 fundamental questions

  1. Who do you serve/ want to serve?
    • Focused companies tend to be more profitable
  2. What do you provide?
    • You build loyalty & deeper relationships when your offering matches your ideal clients’ needs
  3. Why should clients work with you & how you are different?
    • People don’t buy what you do. They buy why you do it
  4. How do you effectively communicate?
    • Your client communications and experience need to be cohesive and aligned with your ideal clients and their preferences

Based on your answers to these questions, the Growth Plan then helps you put together a long-term strategic plan with measurable goals and supporting growth strategies.
