No. 1 Investment, Economic & Business Indicators
Billionaires drive capital expenditures, business ideas and employ thousands and hundred of thousands of employees. Only a handful of businessmen in each country are capable of driving mega projects that goes into billions of dollars.
These are tell-tale signs of where “the wind is blowing.” High Net-worth Advisors help clients to make new business connections and network whilst managing their personal wealth with prudence.
No. 2 Prospecting the Billionaires to be Your Clients
Many advisors dream of having a number of big clients. But are the skill-sets to manage $20 Million and $2 Billion the same?
Billionaires have vast network and access to top professionals. Why would they need your advice? But more importantly, if you are highly valuable, how do you actually get to them? How often do they appear in public? How are you even able to get close to them?
No. 3 Empire and Network
The richest people have businesses and investments everywhere, in the world. This means they have capable people such as professionals or families running the companies and investments for them.
Do you know who they are? Do you have the network to get there? Are you investing in yourself to be there? Are you reaching out to these people?
