As Ruggaard and Associates, Inc. celebrates 25 years in business, founder and owner Randy Ruggaard pondered what is next for his advisory firm. While starting Ruggaard & Associates, Inc. many years ago was challenging at times, Randy knew his core beliefs of trust, skill, and integrity would create a successful business model. Another key factor in the firm’s growth was the use of software. But wait, isn’t technology a more recent trend in business, one might ask? How could that have benefitted the firm for the past 25 years? Well, Randy was an early adopter of software applications and technology. A factor in his success was implementing performance reporting software and giving his clients a measurement tool with the quarterly reports. This approach gave him the ability to translate investment results in a way not many advisors were doing then or even today. Clients were able to see their investments generating real wealth accumulation over time. These business tools set the firm apart from other advisors and helped build long-term relationships with clients.
So, what’s next? How could a successful financial planning firm with long-standing clients improve on their services?
