The Wealthies Circle podcast features finalists and winners of the WealthManagement.com 2020 industry awards, discussing challenges, innovations and trends in the wealth management industry. In a recent episode, WealthManagement.com Managing Editor David Armstrong interviewed Thrivent’s Senior Vice President of Advice and Wealth Management Luke Winskowski about how Thrivent Advisor Network is building a strong community of advisors.
After breaking away, newly independent advisors sometimes feel that they’ve lost a sense of community after leaving their wirehouse or independent broker-dealer. Luke discusses the journey to independence and how a hybrid-RIA platform like Thrivent Advisor Network provides that sense of community in addition to equipping advisors with tools and resources to build their business. Luke explains how collaborating with community of like-minded professionals boosts the ability to think long-term and plan for sustained growth. He and David also discuss how advisors can engage clients around faith and using their wealth as a tool to live meaningful, impactful lives.
