Changes in market conditions, investor demographics, and a shifting competitive landscape make it more important than ever for investment firms and advisors to have access to robust, independent sources of insights into the key drivers of investor satisfaction. To optimize investor loyalty and cultivate the referrals so critical to business growth, firms need to make informed decisions to strike the right balance among the competing needs for investments in technology, recruiting, training, marketing, and product development.
