Signator Investors, Inc. Launches Program, Dedicated Team to Help Advisers with Practice Management

Provides tools, resources and dedicated team of practice management consultants to work one-on-one with advisers

BOSTON, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Signator Investors, Inc., powered by John Hancock Financial Network, announced today that it is making a significant effort to help its advisers improve and grow their practices by launching the Signator Practice Management Program and hiring a dedicated five-person team of practice management consultants.

The Signator Practice Management Program helps advisers improve their practices by examining their people, process and technology.  Advisers will have the option to work one-on-one with a dedicated consultant – or work on their own – whichever option best meets their unique business model.  However, in both instances, advisers will receive exclusive access to a suite of online diagnostic tools, designed to help manage and grow their business by driving efficiencies and targeting the appropriate clients for their services.

Led by Senior Director David Weisman, the newly hired practice management consultants are Joe Daly, Steve Johnson, John Nusslein Amy Pierre-Louis, and Peter Wright. Although they will be based in Boston, their time will largely be spent working with Signator practices on site. In addition, they will host webinars and develop material that can be used throughout Signator.

"As Signator continues to evolve and grow as an independent broker dealer, we want to be known for providing tools and resources that make a difference and help our advisers develop successful practices – that help clients meet their financial goals, that are well run, and that are good places to work," said Matthew Rigatti, vice president of Sales and Field Resources.  "By offering these resources and our new dedicated team focused solely on practice management, we'll help hundreds of our mid-size practices go from good to great."

Rigatti explained that some of the resources already had been available to Signator's top 250 reps and those practices that had entered its annual Practice of the Year competition – and that management had heard how useful they were in evaluating a practice and setting goals for improvement.

"We're looking to provide the tools and resources that can make a difference. Along with our advanced market support, retirement plan support, and our robust equity and succession program, we feel this practice management program truly will help advisers succeed," said Rigatti.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
