We get asked a lot to share some of our best designed advisor websites and throughout the year we have certainly whipped up plenty of those! In 2017, advisors started to realize that it’s not enough to simply have a website. What’s more important is to have a financial planning website that is impactful, informational and lead generating. We’ve worked with so many great advisors and firms to build stunning websites and it was a difficult task to pare the list down to just 10 of our favorites, but we were up for the challenge. Drum roll, please … Twenty Over Ten‘s top 10 financial planning websites that truly stood out in 2017.
1. CPS Wealth
Founded in Geneva, Switzerland, CPS Wealth has a very unique niche. As an international wealth management firm, their advisors cater to global families around the world, especially those in need of international financial advice. To reflect their services, parallax scrolling makes navigation simple and easy for clients and pictures from around the world are used throughout the site. They also have a blog covering college planning, investing, retirement funding, and insights to educate visitors, prospects, and clients alike. Lastly, third-party software is seamlessly integrated into their client center, such as eMoney, ShareFile and Interactive Brokers.
“I chose Twenty Over Ten after reviewing many of the websites they had done for other RIAs. There was one in particular that caught my attention since it had more of an artistic feel versus an institutional feel. The websites done by Twenty Over Ten are modern, clean, user friendly and deliver an RIA’s message effectively.
We are an SEC registered RIA that caters to the needs of the Global American and clients who have connections to the US. Our clients come from diverse backgrounds and have unique requirements which are different from those who live in the United States. We needed a website that would appeal to our global clientele, but was not too lengthy or too US centric.
Mike, our designer, patiently worked with us through various design changes – from artistic to classic – until we agreed upon the current design. We gave the copywriters quite a challenge in asking them to stylize our previous content while ensuring a consistent theme of verbiage using key words such as global, expat and international. We now have a website that meets all our current requirements!
Our experience with Twenty Over Ten was very positive and I would recommend them to any RIA who needs to update their website.” -Ann Marie Regal, CPS Wealth
