Ian Horne From Citywire Talks About Technology and Digital Transformation
Digital transformation means different things to different people. So we’re interviewing industry practitioners and pundits to get their understanding of digital transformation and what it means to financial planning and wealth management businesses.
Our latest interview was with Ian Horne, Head of Audience Development for Citywire. Ian spends a lot of his time talking to financial advisers about industry developments, trends and challenges.
Having recently travelled the UK interviewing many advisers, he produced a documentary entitled ‘Great Advice, Great Profession: The Documentary’. It’s a must watch and includes some revealing and fascinating insights. We highly recommend you give it a watch. We’ve included a link to it at the bottom of this page.
Ian also writes a weekly tech column for Citywire. So in our interview, he talks about digital transformation, the advice gap, and intergenerational wealth. He also gives his view on the current crop of financial adviser technology solutions.
Ian Horne's Documentary 'Great Advice, Great Profession'
Citywire's Ian Horne has spent the last five years speaking to financial advisers across the UK, and having done so, has reached two conclusions: 1) the quality of advice in the UK is something we should be proud of; 2) people don’t usually know what financial advice is, what financial guidance is, or how these things might make them better off and happier.
