Offer a good experience
Kansas-based Waddell & Reed, Inc. understands that a good client experience starts with a good advisor experience.
“We offer the best of both worlds—great infrastructure and independence,” explains Andy Mohn. He’s responsible for sales support at Waddell & Reed, home to the Ivy Funds and the Waddell & Reed Advisors Funds.

Deliver consistent service
While building a technology platform to support the advisor’s planning process, Waddell & Reed chose to integrate Morningstar® Advisor Workstation and Morningstar® Portfolio
Builder. “Morningstar provided Waddell & Reed the best opportunity to build out consistency across our planning toolset,” says Matt Reeves, who led the platform’s development.
Tailor the analysis
The platform’s side-by-side comparisons and scalable reports are a hit with the firm’s 2,400 entry-level-to-experienced advisors. “Morningstar gives the advisor the ability to keep analysis at a very high level, or drill as deep as the client wants,” describes Mohn. “It’s personal, flexible, and offers a very good client experience.”

Translate the value
Clients are connecting
with their advisors’ recommendations, as Waddell & Reed currently has one of the industry’s lowest redemption rates. “That’s partially attributable to the ability of our advisors to communicate the value of the portfolios they’re building,” says Reeves.
