The year is finally over, so we applaud your success. We’ve all adapted, created new ways of doing things, and have been there for each other like never before. 2020 has been a year no one could have predicted – a global pandemic, social unrest, devastating natural disasters, a contentious election cycle, market gyrations of every kind, and lastly, the passing of Dave Wickersham. As we take time to celebrate this holiday season, we know your commitment to your clients is unwavering, and we’re dedicated to supporting you in that effort.
It’s struck me since March that constraints often drive creativity, and we’ve shown that at every turn. As your success continues, this hasn’t surprised any of us at The Leaders Group. It is what you deliver day in and day out, in good times and bad, that brings new business your way. With our service, business-friendly compliance, and technology stack as job one, we look forward to working alongside you as you continue to grow, compete, and succeed.
By harnessing the power of LEADERSlink over these past four years, it has helped to significantly reduce and even eliminate duplication in turn causing fewer delays with our already refined new accounts workflow. That’s the reason we are here today – to remind you of the efficiencies available.
Here’s a highlight of our client management and business submission tech stack available within LEADERSlink:
You can update existing client records by submitting a ‘Client Update’ through the Compliance Approvals tab. Any change can be made to more than 20+ years’ worth of records within the database. While this process won’t instantaneously update your client’s information, it will notify the Accounts Management team of the information that should be changed.
Submitting a ‘Books and Records’ request (BRD for short) is the place you electronically upload copies of our paperwork as well as product sponsor paperwork for compliance review instead of sending hard copies via email, fax, or regular mail to our home office.
A ‘trade blotter’ should be created whenever you want to send an application, check, transfer form, product sponsor request, or any other type of documentation somewhere. The trade blotter helps us and anyone in your office to keep track of items.
Laser App fills your financial industry forms for you, saving you tremendous amounts of time processing paperwork. With over 70 integrations included, DocuSign, and 33,000+ forms in their library, they collect the most financial industry forms and fill them out automatically with more client data than any other system.

This year has tested all of us in new ways. Times like these have a way of shining a light on the blessings in our individual lives and allow us to focus on what matters most. Thank you for your business, and the trust you place in The Leaders Group. We look forward to 2021 with great optimism.
All my best,
David Francis, Principal Operations Officer
