Using Technology to Deepen Client Relationships Across Generations

By Cameron Huddleston, Carefull Family Finance Expert on 1/7/22 4:28 PM

Technology might not seem like a likely tool a financial advisor can use to build client relationships. It almost goes without saying that older generations prefer human interaction versus digital services when it comes to their finances. And surveys have found that even tech-savvy millennials are more likely to get help with their finances from real-life advisors than from robo-advisors. 

So how can technology help financial advisors strengthen and add value to their relationships with clients—especially older clients—when it lacks the human touch? After all, a computer can’t hold your hand during a market downturn. 

But there is new technology that can enable advisors to build their businesses by giving them the ability to better assist aging clients and clients taking care of aging parents at the stage of their financial lives where they need the most help. That new technology is Carefull.

Why You Need to Talk to Clients About Monitoring

By Cameron Huddleston, Carefull Family Finance Expert on 12/29/21 8:00 AM

Courtney Heiden’s dad always took care of the family finances. In fact, he had a background in finance and managed client accounts at the large companies where he worked. So it came as a complete shock when there was a knock on her parents’ door several years ago, and the man at the door said the house was going to be auctioned off the next day.

“My mom actually thought they were kidding or maybe had the wrong house,” Heiden said. “And the man at the door said, ‘No, there's not been a mortgage paid in nine months.’ Their world kind of came crashing down at that moment.”

What You Should Know About Reverse Mortgage Interest Rates

By Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp. on 12/22/21 9:00 AM

It’s easy to lose focus on interest rates when you’re helping your client search for a reverse mortgage loan.

After all, the interest rate won’t affect the monthly payment because they won’t have to make one (though they will need to pay taxes and insurance and maintain the home).

Reverse loans don’t require monthly payments, as the full balance comes due when the last borrower dies or leaves the home.

But reverse mortgage interest rates are still a big deal and should factor into your clients' borrowing decisions. The interest rate will make a huge difference when the balance comes due and your client or their heirs must decide what to do with the home.
