2013 T3 Conference
Adviser technology: Pardon the disruption
How game-changing software often radically rejiggers the way advisers do their jobs. Watch the video below:
"We'll also be looking at financial planning around the world," adds Joel Bruckenstein, CFP, "and expanding on topics we have touched on in the past, such as tablets and iPads. We'll be discussing social media archiving and systems to aid in compliance. There will be a case study on the use of a Web-based document management system and we'll look closely at the contractual ramifications of operating fully in the cloud. As always, we'll be including sessions that cover 'what's new' in financial planning, CRM, document management, desktop portable management systems, and rebalancing.""We're going to offer the attendees the opportunity to participate in round tables for networking purposes in lieu of attending breakout sessions in one of the time slots," adds Drucker. "We've found that conference attendees have much to offer each other, not just in terms of networking, but also as far as sharing experiences and best practices. We hope that the new format will transform the experience from one of viewing discussions to participating in them.

Developed 2007-08, TRX is the brainchild of Sheryl Rowling, Cheryll Lurtz, and Debra Dold. In their professional practice, Sheryl and Debra saw the need for an automated rebalancing tool that could be easily integrated with an Advisor’s existing practice. They set out to create a simple yet powerful investment allocation analysis software that could be up and running with minimal set-up, and easily operated by anyone in the Advisor’s office.
Cheryll, a seasoned programmer with a financial background, teamed with Sheryl and Debra—both CPAs and Personal Financial Specialists—who contributed their extensive financial planning and investment advisory knowledge to the functional performance of TRX. They each have three decades of experience in their respective specialties. Together, they brought their vision to fruition.Read more at www.trxpert.com.
