Voice Over: How does your financial adviser operate?

 

Text appears across the screen: “How does your financial adviser operate?”

Voice Over: Is he or she responsible for juggling multiple tasks?

Animation: A man appears on screen with the text “Jack-of-all-Trades” appearing above his head. 

Three small pieces of paper also appear on screen with headers: “Research Stocks”; “Call Clients”; and “Execute Trades.”

Voice Over: Or, do you have a team of specialists working for you? Who is making the portfolio decisions and what are their credentials?

Animation: The man and his small pieces of paper slide off screen. 

A woman and two men, replaces him. Four financial data charts float over these individuals.

Voice Over: Does your financial adviser call your proactively? Or, only when they have something to sell?

 

 

 

Voice Over: Truth is, many financial advisers are doing a little bit of everything. And the one thing that they might be doing the most is selling, because many are incentivized to push products and attract new clients.

 

 

Animation:  A man with spectacles sits at a desk; a computer screen in front of him displays the word “prospects.” He makes a phone call.

 

A set of graphs and charts float onto the screen above the aforementioned man.

 

The graphs float away and the camera pulls into the computer screen.  A new graphic appears with a chain of emails: Become a client; Meet today; New Product for you; Become a client; Meet today?  The computer screen changes to read: SALES TARGET.

Voice Over: Fisher Investments is different.

 

 

 

 

 


Voice Over: At Fisher, we have a specialist doing each task.  And they are motivated by one thing—to deliver world-class money management to you.

Animation: The text floats to the top of the screen and a pie chart appears beneath it.  The pie chart is segmented into: “Custodian”; “Client Account Coordinator”; “Trading Team”; “Investment Policy Committee”; “Portfolio Evaluation Group”; “Research Department”, and “Local Representative.” 

New text appears at the center of the pie chart: “Personal Investment Counselor.”

 

Voice Over: Your dedicated Investment Counselor is your primary point of contact.  Getting to know you and your financial goals, and working to ensure that your portfolio aligns with your objectives.

 

 

 

Animation: The camera pulls in to the center of the chart.  Underneath the text, “Personal Investment Counselor”, a new bullet point appears: “Understands your personal needs and objectives.” 

A man appears beside the aforementioned text.

 

Voice Over: Now, your Investment Counselor can’t do everything. That’s why they work as a liaison between you and your larger investment team.

 

 

 

Animation: The camera pulls back to reveal the whole pie chart again.

 

The camera zooms into the bottom segment of the pie chart that reads: “Investment Policy Committee.”
