View the complete results of the study at www.nfpasg.com/multidiscipline.

About the Study

Aite Group's independent study – Multidiscipline Practices: The Business Model of the Future – is largely based on the results of two surveys.  This includes a March 2012 survey of approximately 400 U.S. financial advisors and their practices, with representation from many types of firms (e.g., wirehouse, independent broker/dealers and RIAs). In addition, a December 2011 survey of 1,000 U.S. investors sought to better understand their wealth management preferences. This data has a margin of error of 3 percentage points at the 95 percent level of confidence.  Separately, Aite Group conducted interviews with five MDP owners to gather in-depth views on the benefits and challenges of running their businesses.
