Cetera recognized for delivering thought leadership that empowers advisors to communicate Fed actions to clients in a relatable, easy-to-use way
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Cetera Financial Group, one of America’s largest networks of financial professionals, announced today that its Fed Monitor has won the 2022 Wealth Management Industry Award for thought leadership. Cetera’s Fed Monitor represents the first analytical tool that empowers advisors to communicate Fed actions to clients in a relatable, easy-to-use way. This year’s Wealth Management Industry Awards (the “Wealthies”) received a record-breaking number of nominations – nearly 1,000 entries from more than 350 companies – and the winners were announced during a black-tie ceremony at the Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York City on September 8, 2022.
“Monetary policy is one of the most critical determinants of long-term investment performance, yet it is one of the least understood aspects of investing,” said Gene Goldman, CFA®, Cetera’s chief investment officer. “Our Fed Monitor distills this complex research into actionable intelligence for investors and provides a better understanding of Fed policy implications. We are honored to be recognized by Wealth Management and look forward to continuing to provide insight and guidance that helps our advisors better serve their clients and differentiate themselves.”
Launched in November 2021, Cetera’s Fed Monitor quickly resonated with financial professionals, with consistently high traffic and engagement on the Fed Monitor webpage. The Fed Monitor includes the Fed-O-Meter, a virtual, dynamic gauge that forecasts the likelihood of more aggressive or conservative policy in a visually engaging way. The Fed Monitor provides valuable context on current – and potential future – Fed policy based on 12 key factors across three areas: employment, inflation, and market data. Adjusted monthly, the Fed Monitor provides Cetera affiliates and their clients expert insight to make more informed investment decisions.
Now in its eighth year, “The Wealthies,” WealthManagement.com’s annual awards program, honors the individuals, organizations and companies that help financial advisors build better businesses and create better outcomes for their clients.
