Tiburon CEO Summit XXXIV Keynote Presentation Overview: April 10, 2018

Tiburon Strategic Advisors and its Managing Partner Chip Roame presented the Tiburon CEO Summit XXXIV Keynote Presentation on The Top Twelve Wealth Management Industry Trends & Wealth Management Industry Strategic Activity. The objectives of the Tiburon CEO Summit Keynote Presentation were to anchor Tiburon CEO Summit discussion on consumers; to offer a broad view of the wealth management industry; set a discussion agenda for Tiburon CEO Summit XXXIV (framing the dozens of “three big points"), & to introduce 40+ CEO speakers. The basis of the Tiburon CEO Summit XXXIV Keynote Presentation is industry developments (“the news”), recent Tiburon & third-party research findings, the Tiburon CEO Summit XXXIV attendee content survey, & Tiburon CEO Summit XXXIV guest speaker presentations (and prior presentations). This presentation offered a broad overview of the wealth management business and highlighted the top twelve wealth management industry trends as well as the three key strategic activities within wealth management.

Tiburon's CEO Summits provide a unique opportunity for a select cross-industry group of senior executives to discuss a broad swath of issues regarding the future of the banking, insurance, brokerage, & investment management businesses. Tiburon's CEO Summits likely provide one of the only true forums where financial services industry CEOs from across traditional industry silos gather to discuss business opportunities. The list of business relationships resulting from prior Tiburon CEO Summits is impressive.

If you are a CEO, other C-level executive, executive vice president, or partner at a Tiburon CEO Summit sponsor or Tiburon member and would like to participate in Tiburon CEO Summit XXXV, please email Tiburon's Managing Partner Chip Roame.

Tiburon Media Coverage

Tiburon was quoted recently in Insurance.net's article  titled Biggest RIA's on Path to Nationwide Footprint.  The article concludes that the some of the nation's largest registered financial advisors will achieve nationwide footprints in the next ten years. Chip Roame was quoted as saying Fisher Investments, Edelman Financial Services, Mercer Advisors and United Capital Financial Advisors are on that path. However it will still leave plenty of room for smaller RIAs because huge advisors like Fidelity aren’t going to plant stakes in every small town and city.

Tiburon executives have been quoted quite extensively throughout the industry and general media. A list and brief synopsis of those articles that the Tiburon staff has been able to locate (Tiburon accepts that there are probably hundreds of other quotes circulating) can be found at the link below. These short summaries are intended to help prospective Tiburon clients, conference planners, and media representatives understand Tiburon's views on a wide variety of issues throughout the financial services industry. If you are a media representative interested in covering Tiburon, please email Sarah Sage.
