  • Qualitative and quantitative insights from 20+ years of research with the ultra-affluent population and their most trusted advisors.
  • Best practices on identifying, reaching and cultivating high-end prospects through their social and professional networks.
  • Walk away with 3-5 new qualified UHNW prospects, how to connect with them and the strategy for becoming their trusted advisor.


What You Will Learn

Attendees should expect to learn the following:

  • Learn how to build a “Future Client List” by uncovering qualified prospects in the social networks of your existing clients or relationships.
  • Get hands-on instruction on how to read and analyze the Wealth-X client dossier.
  • Understand the implications of specific information (i.e., business background, source of wealth, estimated net worth, memberships, known associates, political and philanthropic tendencies) and how it can be immediately leveraged to grow your business.
  • Learn how to leverage your client’s or prospect’s core passions to develop unique marketing events that will be easy for them to invite potential referrals.
  • Think about your clients and prospects holistically to establish points of connection that will facilitate initial conversations and meetings.
  • Learn how to build trust through crisp and focused questions derived from deep prospect intelligence.
  • Use publicly-available data to determine the best methods of reaching and interacting with your top prospects while identifying their potential needs, concerns and service preferences.
  • Assess each prospect’s network of personal and professional associates to uncover shared contacts and interests.
  • Build client-specific marketing plans that will increase your effectiveness with prospects and influencers. Apply the Wealth-X methodology and other established business development processes to engender a more systematic and disciplined approach to building an UHNW pipeline.
