We get curious questions why we track popular people and their birthdays which are non-related to wealth management, financial markets and investments.

Here are 10 reasons why:

  1. Clients don’t care about complex solutions, neither can they understand them.
  2. There are hundreds of banks and thousands of wealth managers, your solution is not the best, and may be the worst.
  3. If they don’t like you, no matter how low your fees are or how good your solution is, they will not listen to you.
  4. No matter how expert you are, you need to find a willing listener.
  5. A good conversation is different from a real conversation.
  6. Every sales pitch starts with an ice breaker, that sounds real.
  7. You can’t accurately predict financial market, so keep those conversation short.
  8. If you need an excuse to be personable & emotional, linking to famous people you know always help.
  9. There is no better connections than birthday connections.
  10. And there is no better announcement than having the same birthdays as Michael Jackson, Taylor Swift, Jet Li, Jackie Chan.
