Sterling Mutuals Compared with some advisors among the industry’s bigger firms, Sterling Mutuals’ advisors have relatively small books of business. Yet, they’re reportedly growing strongly. In fact, average AUM was up sharply this year to $17.7 million from $12 million in last year’s survey. At the same time, client household numbers remained unchanged, boosting average productivity impressively as well. At the same time, there are also a couple of sales forces that reported a decline in these key metrics. In some cases, this may represent a shift in the underlying demographics at the firm, at which an influx of newer advisors with smaller, less productive books of business weighed on the average for the firm.In addition, some of these changes also may reflect a difference in the sample population year-over-year. Indeed, it’s important to be aware that some volatility in these numbers — both positive and negative — is inevitable because of the relatively small sample sizes that result from breaking down the overall survey by firm.View the slideshow to see how the average advisor for each firm compares. Global Maxfin Investments The sales force at Global Maxfin is skewing a little bit younger this year as the average advisor’s age dropped slightly to 56.5 from 57.1 year-over-over, as has the average advisor’s tenure in the industry. Amid this modest demographic shift, average AUM was essentially unchanged, but client household numbers were down a bit and average productivity was up compared with last year’s survey. Assante Wealth Management (Canada) Assante’s advisors already had some of the largest, most productive books of business in the industry, but that status was elevated further this year. The average Assante advisor surveyed for this year’s Dealers’ Report Card experienced a surge in AUM to $60.1 million from $46.3 million in 2017. At the same time, average AUM/client household was up impressively to $594,448 from $362,988 year-over-year. × Dealers’ Report Card 2018: How each firm’s average advisor measures up Dealers’ Report Card 2018: How each firm’s average advisor measures up Author: James Langton Source: Investment Executive Research Copyright: Investment Executive Dealers’ Report Card 2018: How each firm’s average advisor measures up Author: James Langton Source: Investment Executive Research Copyright: Investment Executive Peak Financial Group Peak’s advisors were one of the few sales forces that reported a decline in average AUM and productivity. Specifically, average AUM was down to $23.9 million from $30.3 million in last year’s survey while AUM/client household dropped to $151,719 from $181,345 in 2017. However, these trends likely reflect the underlying demographics of the advisors surveyed rather than a deterioration in their businesses as both the average age and tenure in the industry among these advisors was down notably year-over-year. In fact, the increase in AUM and improvements in productivity among some firms’ average advisors were relatively dramatic. This is evident among advisors with a couple of the bigger firms in the dealer channel — Assante Wealth Management (Canada) Ltd. and HollisWealth Inc., both based in Toronto — at which industry-leading AUM totals enjoyed strong growth, and at some of the smaller firms in the survey — Calgary-based Portfolio Strategies Corp. and Windsor, Ont.-based Sterling Mutuals Inc. — at which average AUM was up sharply, albeit from much lower starting points. Dealers’ Report Card 2018: How each firm’s average advisor measures up Investment Planning Counsel The average IPC advisor reported a strong surge in productivity, with AUM/client household rising to $294,676 this year from just $198,927 in last year’s survey. The increase in productivity was a result of a combination of both an increase in average assets under management (AUM), to $44.4 million from $38.7 million, coupled with a notable drop in client household numbers, to 185.3 from 221.

The fact that their reported client household numbers were down to 207.6 from 240 from last year suggests that Manulife Securities’ advisors are focusing their attention increasingly toward their higher net-worth clients, which is helping boost productivity. Worldsource Wealth Management Worldsource’s advisors’ average AUM, client household numbers, productivity and satisfaction with the firm were all down markedly this year. Notably, average AUM dropped to $35.9 million this year from $55.4 million in last year’s survey. At the same time, client household numbers were down and productivity declined as well. Amid these negative trends, the proportion of Worldsource’s advisors who said they would recommend the firm has also dropped to 72% from 91.8% in last year’s survey.

However, drilling down into the responses from individual firms exposes a lot more volatility in these metrics. Dealers’ Report Card 2018: How each firm’s average advisor measures up Dealers’ Report Card 2018 main chart HollisWealth The average HollisWealth advisor’s AUM was up notably, rising to $67.3 million this year from $53.4 million in last year’s survey. At the same time, average client household numbers were up as well. This resulted in average advisor productivity dropping to $257,374 from $280,243 in 2017. However, the proportion of advisors who would recommend the firm was down to 65.2% from 80.4% last year because of HollisWealth’s transition to new ownership under Quebec City-based Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc. from Bank of Nova Scotia. Dealers’ Report Card 2018: Editors discuss rocky results Dealers’ Report Card 2018: How each firm’s average advisor measures up Investors Group Compensation among Investors Group’s advisors appears to be on the rise, with the proportion of the lowest-paid advisors declining and the share in the highest-paid categories on the rise. This year, just 15.6% of the firm’s advisors reported earning less than $100,000 a year, down from 26.8% in last year’s survey. At the same time, 28.9% of Investors Group’s advisors said that they’re now earning between $250,000 and $500,000 a year, up from 22% in 2017. As well, the share of advisors who reported earning more than $500,000 has jumped to 8.9% this year from just 2.4% in 2017. Portfolio Strategies Average AUM was up impressively among Portfolio Strategies advisors, rising to $25.1 million this year from $19.1 million in 2017. However, these advisors also are serving more client households, which has resulted in a decline in average productivity despite robust gains in AUM.

Dear Editor,In an earlier letter, I highlighted the fact that the charges brought by SOCU/SARA against Dr Ashni Singh and Mr Brassington are “frivolous and vexatious” in the law and should be withdrawn. My reasons are: you cannot charge ministers of Government for carrying out their duties expeditiously and successfully; it defies intelligence.Where in that charge was the state of Guyana negatively impacted by those ministers’ decisions? The answer is nowhere. For the very same reason, I think the DPP has dismissed charges against the five ministers of this present Government. She would have contended that for sitting ministers to be charged in dispensing their duties in office, it would be improper, seeing they are in the process of doing “their work.” It would also cause a logistical nightmare having to summon ministers from their “busy” schedule to attend court, and having to sift through volumes of paperwork. This should not happen. Not a legal answer, because no one should be immune from prosecution, Government nor Opposition, but plausible enough for the common man to go with. So, these charges brought against Dr Singh and Mr Brassington would not stand the test in a court of law,but would only amount to another “witch hunt,” another futile attempt to besmirch the good name of these noble gentlemen. But, let me get back to my main discourse. Governments are given the mandate to manage the ship of state in a developmental way, and this is done by careful planning and meticulous execution of same. Experts Singh and Brassington are living testimony to those principles, the indelible evidence is shown in decades of sustainable growth for our country. To do otherwise runs against the grain of economic strategy and economic principles; that is: Governments must provide the framework for development to take place. That framework was exemplified in Dr Singh’s policy of “getting the best deals in the market,” as well as by “attracting” the Internationals to invest. This principle is the root cause for Sir Arthur Lewis earning The Nobel Prize for Economics. You must lay the groundwork or provide the climate for investment. Poor, oftentimes underdeveloped countries like Guyana have grave difficulty attracting foreign investment. It is a huge problem. No one would want to come to a country where the infrastructure is archaic and rundown, in certain cases non-existent; and where telecommunications, cable and Internet are still in the Stone Age. To attract these investors, there must be some incentive to attract them, affordable land is one of those incentives. Those of our tourist neighbours who are already entrenched in the multi-million tourist industry utilise that principle by granting tax holidays. It is normal, routine procedure for Governments to grant five, most often 10 years of tax holidays to large foreign companies to invest in the Caribbean. It marks progressive thinking and forward planning. Well, judging the book from the PNC’s SOCU’s and SARA’s Standards, this would be gross misconduct and fraud of state funds. The progressive Caribbean neighbours, on the other hand, would be laughing themselves to sleep to ascertain where the Guyanese are going with such retrograde thinking. Following the PNC’s line of reasoning, then we must investigate the establishment of all those housing schemes that were established under the PPP/C regime, examples are Sophia, La Parfaite Harmonie, Little Diamond, Cummings Lodge. All of these mega housing areas which provide housing for poor Guyanese were created from scratch, with lands which were acquired as a result of purchasing at undervalued market prices. Should we haul those poor land owners before the court to have their lands revalued and make them pay the state the true price? You see where I am going and how ridiculous these charges are? And to think of it, we are only talking about the purchase price for the landed property, what if we compute the price paid for the modernization of those areas, bringing them into habitable housing; the roads, water, electrification, drainage, telecommunication and the like? Here you get the real picture of how backward their misconduct charge is. There is a whole gamut of information, processes, facts and figures you would have to go through in order to ascertain misconduct, and I don’t think this Government, far less its Attorney General, who is extremely limited (and that is putting it mildly) can sensibly defend. Thus far, what the PNC have succeeded in doing is to bare their witch hunting abilities before a hapless, hopeless nation that they themselves have pauperized. This is done by a bunch of geriatrics who lack the brain as well as manpower to govern in a civilized manner. Their unintelligent and base posturing is becoming more and more intolerable, as their time to demit office draws near.Sincerely,Neil Adams
According to an Auto Club survey, the top destination. Nearly 3.6 million Southern California residents are expected to take trips for the Independence Day holiday, with more than 80 percent of them driving to their destinations, the Automobile Club of Southern California predicted today. Statewide, about 5.7 million people are expected to travel — a 1.5 percent jump over last year, according to the Auto Club. “Because the Fourth of July is on Wednesday, many households are taking a longer trip of at least five days,” said Carol Thorp of the Auto Club. “In fact, 42 percent of Southern Californians traveling to Fourth of July getaways are expected to leave on or before Friday, while another 22 percent will leave on Monday and 14 percent will leave Tuesday.” While most traveling Southlanders will drive to their destinations, another 614,000 are expected to travel by plane. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

bernard lunn Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… The Internet economy has been built on the network effect (i.e. the effect that one user of a good or service has on the value of that product for other people). Investors and entrepreneurs have treated this like Moore’s Law. But just as Moore’s Law hits physical constraints, network effects have a limit in many types of online communities. Indeed, in some cases, a reverse network effect may exist: as new people join, others are motivated to leave. This dramatically affects the length of the competitive advantage enjoyed by these ventures. In this post, we’ll look at which ventures suffer from reverse network effects, which don’t, and which may suffer depending on the strategy they choose to adopt.Signs of Reverse Network EffectReal human social networks (as opposed to the tools that facilitate online communication between people in a social network) have an obvious reverse network effect. If I have too many people in my social network, I cannot pay enough attention to each of them, and without attention, relationships fade.Back in September 2007, we looked at social motivation in the real world, specifically the two distinct types of motivation. One is, “I want to communicate better with the people I already know and trust”. The other is, “I want to increase my visibility so that I can connect with more people.”Both have clear limits. The number of people I can really know and trust is limited, because knowing and trusting take time and attention. Increasing visibility, whether by blogging or tweeting or advertising or PR, is less limited. But when visibility goes beyond a certain number of people, it becomes no more social than broadcast media or spamming. The personal touch is gone. The real community spirit is gone.As Groucho Marx remarked, “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member.” If it is an exclusive club, the membership has to be limited. If it is not exclusive, is it really “social”?eBay is the classic example of a network that lost its community spirit after reaching a certain scale, as the comments on this post vehemently demonstrate. This loss opened the market for eBay alternatives, such as Bonanzle. It is unclear whether these alternatives will face the same issues when they get to scale.Etsy will be an interesting case study. It looks like it may avoid the reverse network effect by being focused entirely on handmade goods. That focus may limit its eventual scale, as not everybody wants to make or buy handmade goods, but it will still be able to build a business more than big enough to satisfy even the most demanding dreams of avarice. That focus on handmade goods will act as its social glue. It will grow as eBay would have had it decided to remain focused on the global garage sale, not getting lured into selling mass consumer goods. I suspect if eBay had done that, its core business today would be smaller but ultimately more profitable and sustainable.Networks Without Messy Human Interaction Are ImmuneeBay the corporation owns two businesses that have almost perfect network effects and do not suffer from any reverse network effects: PayPal and Skype.PayPal works for consumers because merchants use it, and merchants like it because consumers like it. The fact that everybody likes it won’t make me like it any less.Skype gets more useful with each new user, and each new user promotes Skype, consciously or unconsciously, for his or her own reasons. Even better, the cost of providing the service goes down with each new user, and that is really unusual (a function of Skype’s P2P architecture). Google and PayPal also benefit from each new user, but they still have to service that user, and that costs money. In the case of a video service such as YouTube, the servicing cost is significant. So Skype really is in a league of its own when it comes to network effects, and that is why it may become the world’s largest telephone company and the biggest economic success story of the Web 2.0 era. (Google Voice, having just thrown its hat in the ring to battle Skype, will be interesting to watch. My bet is on Skype.)The difference, though, is that we do not look at these services as communities. They are simply enablers of commodity transactions: payments and phone calls.What About Social Networks?Does Facebook still feel special now that it has 175 million users and is growing at a rate of 600,000 per day? That is a sincere question for Facebook users. I am one of the few people who do not use Facebook. For whatever reason, I never got into the habit. And I have no compelling reason to start now. This has made me a bear on Facebook for a long time. As a non-user, I miss what makes Facebook special and why it grows so fast.The network that I use is LinkedIn. I use it to connect to people who my contacts know. As far as I am concerned, it is a utility in the same way that the phone or my email/CRM system is a utility. Do I care that LinkedIn has 7.7 million users now? Does that make it more valuable to me? No. Is Facebook 22 times more valuable to me than LinkedIn because it has 22 times more users? No.Here is the theory:In a social network, the value for existing users of a new user joining the network plateaus once users have most of their own contacts in that network.Of course, the social network grows in value as a business as more users come into it because the network then has more eyeballs to sell to advertisers. But that is different from network effects. As a LinkedIn user, I do not benefit when more strangers join. I already have about 90% of my contacts in there, and the remaining 10% may remain hold-outs; and I don’t really care anyway, because I can always reach them outside of LinkedIn. When I meet somebody in business, I look them up on LinkedIn and connect if they are on it (I cannot recall anybody recently who was not on it). I do that to keep my Rolodex updated, which is a very valuable utility for me. But my actions are not growing the network. If I joined a new network, I would spam all my contacts asking them to join, but I have zero motivation to do that.As a long-time Facebook user, do you care when more strangers join? Does it make any difference to the value you get from Facebook?So, it is possible that the network effect has a natural plateau.A Plateau Is Okay, But a Steep Downward Slope?Whether that plateau turns into a downward slope depends on the monetization strategy adopted by the “owners” of the social network. And in the social networking business, a downward slope can very quickly become a steep slope or even a cliff. Trust tends to be binary; viral can work both ways; and switching costs are minimal. That is why I put “owners” in quotation marks. You can never really own a social network or community. You can provide services and extract rent for only as long as the community wants those services and is willing to pay the rent.This is where the incredibly high valuations of businesses such as Facebook and LinkedIn may become problematic. If these businesses get too eager to monetize to justify those valuations, they may create the reverse network effect.There are only two ways to monetize: ask for revenue from users who regard the service as a utility (like paying for the phone company), or ask for revenue from vendors that want to sell something to the people using the service. Thus far, all the major social networks have taken the latter fork in the road. They don’t want to become utilities because that wouldn’t justify their lofty valuations. So they have to sell more to those who use the service. At that point, the reverse network effects may kick in.CraigslistCraigslist chose a different path by not taking on external investors. It has no valuation to justify. It can leave masses of money on the table without any worries. So Craigslist won’t suffer the reverse network effects that come from over-eager monetization. Its model of allowing lots of free listings will sustain high growth and is clearly impacting eBay’s business.Twitter an Interesting Case StudyOnce again, Twitter is the interesting one to watch. The ease with which one can add and delete who one follows makes its size self-regulating. As a real-time search tool, its value goes up with each new user. As a communication tool, it goes up as new people join who might be interesting to follow. Its openness may prevent the reverse network effect.The other reason Twitter is an interesting case study is that it has not yet disclosed its revenue model. If the revenue model it does adopt involves selling to its users, the reverse network effect may kick in. Twitter would become classic MBA case study material, a fact of which management must be well aware!

Barely four days after a hectic series against the West Indies, India begin their tour of Australia with a two-day warm-up game against CA Chairman’s XI here on Thursday with focus on acclimatising to conditions ahead of the gruelling Test series beginning later this month.India are high on confidence after their 2-0 and 4-1 wins in the Test and ODI series against the West Indies and they would straightaway get down to their task of getting a feel of Australian conditions which would be much different from what they had faced at home.Sniffing India’s best chance to beat a weakened and demoralised Australian side at their own backyard, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had stressed upon the importance of acclimatising to the conditions as fast as possible in the 12 days ahead of first Test starting in Melbourne on December 26.The Indian Cricket Board had also sent seven players, including the trio of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and V V S Laxman five days in advance to train in Melbourne, to prepare for what would certainly be their last tour of Australia.The remaining players, including Dhoni and coach Duncan Fletcher landed in Australia last night and straightaway left for Canberra for the first warm-up game tomorrow.It is to be seen if India will roll out a star-studded team for the first warm-up match at Manuka Oval, given that there is a three-day game starting on Monday against another CA Chairman’s XI boasting of Australian players like David Warner, Usman Khawaja and Phil Hughes.advertisementWith the tour coming in four years after the acrimonious series in 2008, Dhoni had indicated that the team management would want to use the 12 days before the first Test as much as possible and in that case he would want to use as many players as possible from his 17-man squad.One concern though would be not to rush players like pacer Zaheer Khan, on whom the Indian team could rely on heavily in the tour in the bowling department.From what coach Fletcher had said in Chennai before departing for Australia, Zaheer could be rested for the first game tomorrow and fielded in the second game starting on Monday.”Zaheer has got these two games. It will be preparation for him. We do not want to rush him too quickly. The one three day game there will be important for him before the first Test,” Fletcher had said.Dhoni had also said that remaining injury-free would be crucial in the Test series, more so after pacers Praveen Kumar and Varun Aaron have been ruled out due to injuries after being named in the touring squad.”We had enough time for some preparation also before the start of the first Test. Looking good as of now. Hopefully we do not have too many injuries before the start of the Test series,” he had said before team departure.Most of the batsmen are among runs in the Test and ODI series against the West Indies at home with the likes of Virender Sehwag and Virat Kohli fresh from impressive show in the limited-overs format.Tendulkar, who is just one short of a historic 100 international tons, was below-par against the West Indies considering the high standards he sets for himself and he would be eager to knock down some runs before he gets into the groove for Test series.The same would be the case for Laxman, who has also not been in his best form against the West Indies. Dravid, who was the stand-out performer against the West Indies and England before that, would want to straightaway be in the thick of things.In the bowling department, Ishant Sharma would be raring to go for the first warm-up game tomorrow as he would look for another memorable tour after an impressive show three years ago when he tormented Ricky Ponting no ends in Perth.India’s opponents tomorrow do not have many prominent Australian cricketers with Test hopeful Ed Cowan being replaced by Queensland opening batsman Ryan Broad at the last minute.Broad will captain the side, which has no Australian Test player and is composed of players not involved in the Big Bash Twenty20 League.It won’t, however, be easy for the visitors to be at their best under cold conditions and seaming wicket expected to be found at Manuka Oval.The teamsIndia (From): Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Virender Sehwag (vc), Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, Gautam Gambhir, Zaheer Khan, Virat Kohli, Abhimanyu Mithun, Ravichandran Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Ajinkya Rahane, Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Rohit Sharma, Vinay Kumar, Umesh Yadav.advertisementCA Chairman’s XI: Ryan Broad (c), Joe Burns, Tom Cooper, Alex Doolan, Peter George, Jake Haberfield, Josh Lalor, Tim Ludeman, Glenn Maxwell, Joe Mennie, Wes Robinson, Dean Solway.
