"Every professional advisor knows that a complete picture of wealth is rare when accounts are spread across institutions or only one person knows the details," Russell Dow, Founder, Dow Software
SARASOTA, FL, June 30, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The digital revolution has arrived for professional services. Even the most successful advisors will struggle to remain competitive unless they embrace new technology—and major investment firms may be left scrambling. Introducing Strad Professional 2.0. This fully secure, cloud-based software allows financial advisors, lawyers, and other professional advisors to easily add Family Office services to their practices. This enables collaboration, greater insight, and uniquely personalized advice—precisely the advantage that's needed in a changing industry that prizes expertise. For a limited time, advisors are invited to enjoy a free, no-obligation trial at Strad.com and learn for themselves how the platform can help them reinvent their practice, generate recurring revenue, and outclass the competition.
By bringing the family office to the mass affluent and their trusted advisors, Strad Professional revolutionizes an approach which for decades has been available only to ultra-high-net-worth investors. Designed by advisors, for advisors, Strad Professional consolidates all of the information that might affect a family's well-being—their financial, legal, and life circumstances—in a way that is secure, accessible, and useful to both a family and the professionals they rely on. Connected by a secure online portal, trusted advisors can share real-time data and work together to enrich their client's lives. Its proprietary portfolio management system, developed exclusively for financial advisors, also eliminates the need for costly third-party managers or investment products.
"As every professional advisor knows, a complete picture of wealth is hard to come by when accounts are spread across institutions or only one person knows the crucial details," says Russell Dow, the founder and developer of Dow Software and Strad Professional, its flagship product serving the professional services industry. "As an attorney, financial advisor, and software developer myself, I realized that technology was the key to orchestrating wealth's complexities, and that the multidisciplinary approach offered by traditional family offices helped clients maximize their potential.
