Tip #4: Seek win-win agreements with COIs that are mutually beneficial and satisfying. A successful COI relationship is never a one-way street.

COIs can be extremely helpful right now as we deal with the COVID-19 crisis. When we all work together and elevate each other, great things can happen.

As Beyond AUM co-founder Gretchen Halpin recently wrote in Advisor Perspectives, “Contact your centers of influence and brainstorm ways you can band together to help your mutual clients navigate the weeks ahead. Emphasize the value of your service and expertise and use it to create positive change.”
