Generational Reach Program

How well do spouses know their partners’ financial advisor?

How well do children know their parents’ advisors?

According to statistics, maybe not well enough. Studies show that 80% of spouses switch financial advisors within a year of their husband’s death1 and 70% of children2 do not continue on with established advisors when the client passes away.

Why is that important? It may mean that a wealth of history and information about an asset owner’s interests and intentions can get lost in the shuffle.

Communication is the key to long-lasting agent/client relationships. Our Generational Reach value add materials can help you create quality communications and stronger financial relationships.


We have resources to help clients and advisors learn more about the importance of reaching out to family about financial intentions. Client can see content below. Advisors can contact a W&S Financial Group Distributors representative for even more tools.
