• Cara Woodland • October 4, 2021

2. Digital Assets Going Mainstream: Opportunities for Financial Institutions – Oliver Wyman

3. The Cerulli Edge U.S. Advisor Edition: Taxes and Regulations Issue – Cerulli Associates
Cerulli says changes in Washington present opportunities for financial professionals.

4. Expanding Delivery of Philanthropic Advisory Across Wealth Management – Aite Novarica
Historically, there hasn’t been much room in the financial services industry for philanthropic advice. This is rapidly changing as savvy firms find ways to donate advice to those who can not be profitably served but need financial guidance nonetheless. This is particularly valuable, they point out, for firms hoping to attract young talent. Access the report here.
