Jan. 15 - The Financial Services Institute (FSI) has launched a new mobile app which provides independent financial advisors and financial services firm executives access to advocacy tools and industry updates whenever, wherever. This all-in-one app puts FSI’s resources at members’ fingertips.
This brand-new mobile app is the next generation of the FSI Advocacy App – the first-of-its-kind app in the industry released by FSI in 2012. While advocacy remains the central component, the FSI App also features an array of content for members ranging from industry news to FSI conferences and event information, as well the redesigned Advocacy Action Center to protect their businesses and their clients’ access to their advice on the go.
The new FSI App includes:
The new app comes on the heels of a total digital revamp for FSI. This past September, FSI launched a brand new website and social network called “FSI Social” for industry executives and financial advisors to network and problem solve in a virtual environment.
“As we continue to grow our membership and with the trend toward increased regulation, it is more important than ever that our members are able to respond in real time to pending legislation and regulations impacting our industry and their clients,” said FSI President & CEO Dale Brown. “The new FSI App allows independent financial advisors and firm executives to connect with and educate their elected officials and regulators, stay up-to-date on industry news, access conference agendas and information and receive push text messages from FSI all within a single app. Over the past year we have been working to improve accessibility of our advocacy tools, resources and industry news across various platforms with the redesign of the FSI website, a new social network and now-daily distribution of the FSI Newsbrief. The FSI App ties these resources together in one convenient location.”
The FSI App is available for download to both Apple and Android devices. The app can be downloaded at financialservices.org/app or by scanning the QR code below.
