"The advisory industry's ongoing transition from products to advice is a benefit to consumers, but has created a "crisis of differentiation" amongst financial advisors as we all try to distinguish why our intangible advice is better than any other advisor's who says they're just as good. The key in such environments is to find a niche or specialization, which allows you to truly customize and adapt your advice services to be uniquely relevant and differentiated to the clients you serve. In this context, I see organizations like Kingdom Advisors and their CKA designation as incredibly well positioned for the future, supporting Christian Financial Advisors uniquely delivering Biblically-Wise Financial Advice aligned to the values and priorities of their Christian clients.”, according to Michael Kitces, well-known speaker and blogger.
