Common Questions

 

What is a project?

A “project” is any deliverable an FA would like from a Financial Wholesaler. Whether an FA needs a speaker at a client event, is inquiring about a new fund, would like tips/advice on growing their book, through AssetLink, an FA can post projects to any Wholesaler in their territory.

 

Who should post a project?

All Financial Advisors or Branch Managers are encouraged to post projects. AssetLink automatically uses the FA information to match the project with a network of Wholesalers with the same territory, channel, and other criteria the FA selects.

 

How do I message a wholesaler?

After submitting a project and receiving submissions by wholesalers, the FA and Wholesaler will see a message button on the project page, which will take the user to a messaging page. The messaging feature allows the Fa and Wholesaler to communicate about the project or exchange needed information.

 

What is my Network?

“My Network” is a feature on AssetLink that allows an FA to “save” Wholesaler profiles to one location. Usually these are Wholesalers the FA has worked with or wants to work with.

 

Can I alert people in my network when I post a project?

Yes! In fact, there is a feature on AssetLink that allows you to post your project to your saved network. An automatic email will be sent to the Wholesalers prompting them to view your project.

 

I am a wholesaler and my company is not listed. How do I register?

If you do not see you company upon Wholesale registration, you will see a “Don’t see your company” button under “Select Your Company”. This button allows you to request that your company be included in our database. We have a thorough vetting process for all companies and if all checks out, we will add the company suggestion. Then registration will then be possible.

 

How do I message an advisor?

After you, the Wholesaler, have submitted a bid for a project and you have been chosen by the FA, you will see a message FA button on the project page that will allow you to start a conversation with the FA. You have the ability to share any information the FA requires and will allow you to get to know the FA better.
