Retail Investors Watching More Videos, Participating In More Webcasts, But Still Feel Adrift

 

Investment videos have seen their viewership surge 350% over the last year while webcasts are up 300%, according to new numbers from research consulting firm Hearts & Wallets.

 

Blogs, websites, and other high-tech channels are also in vogue, the firm says.

 

However, a full 30% of these advisors now worry about their lack of experience. That's up from last year and reflects a simple truth: too much information, not enough guidance.

 

That's another bit of good news for advisors willing to reach out to all these information-saturated, well-educated prospects and show them how to put all that data to use.
