Episode 036: On this week’s episode of The Connected Advisor, I talk with Mark DeLotto, Managing Partner and COO at Simon Quick Advisors, about the transformative effects of AI and technological innovation on wealth management.

We discuss the challenges of integrating family office services within an RIA framework, focusing on the importance of multi-generational teams, goal-based financial planning, and maintaining a high-quality customer experience while scaling personalized advisory services.
