    • The largest advisor-only community
    • The premier forum for sophisticated discussions of investments, financial planning, and practice management
    • Membership includes 60 industry thought leaders

    BOSTON, MA. March 4, 2016. Advisor Perspectives is pleased to announce that on February 22, 2016, APViewpoint (www.apviewpoint.com) enrolled its 10,000th member, a significant milestone which reinforces its standing as the largest online community for financial advisors.

    Since its launching in May, 2014, APViewpoint has become the industry-recognized forum where advisors can share insights and discuss issues of vital importance to their profession with their peers and 60 nationally recognized thought leaders. This impressive roster of thought leaders includes Bob Veres, Wade Pfau, Michael Kitces, Larry Swedroe, Harold Evensky, Charlotte Beyer, Michael Edesess, Dan Solin, David Blanchett, Ron Rhoades, Joe Tomlinson and Deborah Fox.

    ”We are exceptionally thankful for the widespread adoption APViewpoint has achieved among advisors,” said Bob Huebscher, founder and CEO of Advisor Perspectives. “But we are even more pleased by the degree to which APViewpoint has advanced the advisory profession, by providing a forum for thoughtful discussions about the most important topics and challenges facing wealth managers and financial planners.”

    APViewpoint’s members and thought leaders value the ability to share their own knowledge and learn from their peers and other advisors.

    “APViewpoint is becoming a hub of thought leadership on the most important topics in the financial planning/investment advisor profession. I’ve been encouraging my Inside Information readers to discuss my articles on APViewpoint, where I can watch the advisor community interact and evolve the conversation to places I wouldn’t have gotten to on my own,” said Bob Veres, editor and publisher of Inside Information.

    “The quality of the discussions on APViewpoint is higher than on other industry sites, and I’ve benefited and learned both from participants’ insights and from being forced to justify my positions based on the data and research as well as logic,” said Larry Swedroe, head of research for Buckingham Asset Management and author of The Incredible Shrinking Alpha.

    “Participation in the APViewpoint community has been extremely rewarding for me. It allows me to engage in discussions and ask questions about the topics that are of the most interest to me. I love the openness of the debates,” said Scott MacKillop, CEO of First Ascent Asset Management.

    Many of APViewpoint’s highly sophisticated conversations on active versus passive management, retirement income planning, portfolio management, mutual funds and ETFs, client acquisition and communication and other topics have been cited on various online publications.

    A key benefit for members is access to exclusive webinars presented by some of the most respected investment experts in the industry, including Veres, Pfau, Swedroe, Edesess, Jeffrey Gundlach, and Richard Bernstein. Some of the most active conversations on APViewpoint have been centered on the issues raised in these presentations.

    To celebrate APViewpoint’s 10,000-member milestone, Advisor Perspectives will continue its tradition of making charitable donations to charities recommended by its thought leaders, giving a total of $11,000 to The Jimmy Fund, The American Red Cross, The Foundation for Financial Planning and the USO.
