Introducing Livewire for Clients
Talk personal finance with an actual person - not a computer
Why we created Livewire
By Aasim Saeed
(Co-founder and COO)
I know how difficult it can be to find a financial professional you can trust. As a former McKinsey consultant, I was used to spending 4 nights a week in a hotel, never home and never able to take a few hours off work to meet with a financial advisor. But it was worth it, because I was proud to be hired by fortune 500 companies to help get their finances in order. Ironically, the times I was most frustrated and confused was when I was dealing with my own personal finances.
However, as a professional road warrior in the 21st century, I had tons of great tools to help me keep in contact with friends and family: things like text messaging, email or -- if I wanted a more intimate conversation -- video conferencing like Google Hangout or Apple's FaceTime. But for some reason, those simple tools didn't exist for financial professionals. It was like the industry that time forgot.
That's why we built Livewire: a place where clients can easily find, review and connect with qualified professionals.
In an age of do-it-yourself software, we wanted to bring the personal connection and trust back into the relationship we build with financial advisors. To us, that meant building something that not only helped clients and financial professionals find one another, but also helped them to connect. So after we created the Livewire Concierge marketplace with thousands of professional profiles, we kept going. We created tools and technology to help people connect. After all, that's what it's really about.
Making personal finance personal again
Managing your personal finances can be complicated enough. Finding a qualified expert to work with shouldn't be. That's why Livewire is on a mission to use technology to make it incredibly easy to connect with live financial professionals who can help you navigate those complexities and ensure a secure future for you and your family.
