A report was recently released by Spectrem Group titled “Social Media and the Investor” which surveyed 500 financial decision makers in households with over $50,000 in annual income who spend at least two hours per week on the internet.
Results from the study indicated that 36% of investors are interested in receiving information from their advisors or corresponding with them through Social Media. 77% of investors in the study that read blogs are likely to utilize them for information on new financial products and services.
In a time of such a troubled economy and poor market conditions it is essential that Financial Advisors open up multiple channels of communication in order to increase investor confidence. Until this year, Social Media was taboo in the financial world due to regulation concerns.
