They are as dumb as the traffic signal that stops you with a red light when no other cars are coming for five miles in any direction. Translation: A person’s life and markets change by the minute and the pages of your static financial plan often turn yellow before they get an update. inStream Solutions is a new cloud-based wealth management platform that allows us to monitor the impact of client activities, market environments and other outside forces have on the goals and aspirations of our clients. This means client plans and goals are updated in real time allowing us instant alerts when plans need to be revised or the probability of completing goals falls outside levels of confidence. inStream Solutions won the most innovation technology award by FPPad.com and was displayed on Morningstar’s website.
