Learn How Certified Advisor Reviews™ Help You Get More Clients Online
Introducing Certified Advisor Reviews™
Certified Advisor Reviews™ help consumers make smarter hiring decisions when choosing a financial advisor.
Wealthtender is the first financial advisor review platform designed to be fully compliant with the SEC Investment Adviser Marketing rule. (Learn More)
With Certified Advisor Reviews™, you can:
- Confidently ask your clients (and acquaintances) for reviews
- Promote your reviews to attract new clients
- Strengthen your online reputation with clients and prospects
- Establish your trustworthiness with Google and Bing
- Demonstrate your consumers’ interests first mindset
- Unlock reviews trapped on sites like Google and Yelp
- Import and certify reviews from Google & all other platforms
Michael Kitces Offers His Perspective on Certified Advisor Reviews™
“… Wealthtender is launching a more centralized “Advisor Reviews” platform, where advisors can sign up for a page on Wealthtender that centralizes all of their Google, Yelp, and other third-party website reviews, and repackages them as “Certified Advisor Reviews” (reviewed by Wealthtender) for which the advisor can add a Reviews badge to their website (linking to their Wealthtender profile).
...Nonetheless, the reality is that because testimonials have long been recognized as such a powerful marketing tool – including in financial services, where for decades they were only banned because they were deemed too influential and at risk for abuse! – it seems inevitable that client testimonials will soon become a core part of advisor marketing. The only question is how, exactly, advisory firms will find it best to collect and share them for the (right) prospects to see?”
- Michael Kitces at Nerd's Eye View
The Latest in Financial #AdvisorTech (June 2021)
Thinking about asking for reviews on sites like Google or Yelp? Think again.
We'll be the first to admit if we're wrong. But we're not wavering in our belief that forthcoming SEC guidance will clarify that review platforms like Google and Yelp simply aren't compatible with the SEC Marketing rule, thus limiting acceptable use of these platforms to only include unsolicited reviews.
Here’s What We Know with Certainty:
Google and Yelp are well-known review platforms popular with consumers. And many advisors already have unsolicited reviews written about them visible on these sites. If these are favorable reviews and are truly unsolicited, that’s terrific as advisors gain SEO benefits and visibility among consumers visiting these sites.
But because reviews on Google and Yelp lack the required SEC disclosures to be considered advertisements (e.g. testimonials and endorsements you can promote to grow your business), advisors can’t direct prospects to check out their reviews on these platforms.
Here’s What We Don’t (Yet) Know:
Unlike unsolicited reviews published on Google or Yelp, the SEC has not formally offered guidance to clarify if solicited reviews on Google and Yelp are deemed an advertisement, and therefore subject to the prohibitions and disclosure requirements described in the SEC Marketing rule. So the question we need the SEC to answer is: Does the act of a financial advisor simply asking for a review to be written on specific platforms like Google or Yelp entangle an advisor in its creation and trigger the prohibitions and disclosure requirements?
While industry opinions are mixed on the guidance the SEC will ultimately provide, we believe it’s highly likely the SEC will take issue with advisors proactively soliciting reviews on platforms known to be incompatible with the Marketing rule. With its principles-based rule intended to ensure consumers gain important information to make more informed decisions, we don’t expect the SEC to look favorably upon a rampant proliferation of advisor reviews on platforms incapable of addressing the Marketing rule’s prohibitions and disclosure expectations.
Further, we believe the SEC could point to FINRA Regulatory Notice 17-18 that addresses this topic covering testimonials of registered representatives. In the notice, FINRA states: “FINRA does not regard unsolicited third-party opinions or comments posted on a social network to be communications of the broker-dealer or the representative for purposes of Rule 2210, including the requirements related to testimonials in paragraph (d)(6).”
Wealthtender has submitted written requests for clarification on this matter to the SEC (likely along with many other industry participants) and we monitor the SEC’s Marketing rule FAQ page daily. We’ll share updates as additional SEC guidance becomes known.
October 12, 2021 Update: The SEC Investment Adviser Regulation Office (within the Division of Investment Management) responded by email to Wealthtender confirming their team will consider updating the SEC Marketing rule FAQ page to address the analogous question answered by FINRA in Regulatory Notice 17-18 that could put this matter to rest.

💬 What Do Advisors Say About Joining Wealthtender?
"Wealthtender is an absolutely vital resource for our marketing and brand recognition needs. They literally "do it all" from helping maximize SEO benefits to providing media requests to suggesting blog posts or content ideas to help get your name out - you name it! Wealthtender's vision of becoming a robust advisor database is also very needed given the problems with the CFP search tool and the fragmentation between all the different types of advisors and financial coaches."
Eric Simonson, CFP®, CRPC®, CLTC®Abundo Wealth
"Prospective clients have many financial advisors to choose from, and online presence is critical during their evaluation process. Wealthtender makes it easy for me to build rapport with prospects well before they reach out for an initial consultation.
Brian Thorp wants to see financial professionals succeed, and this is evident in all of the marketing features provided to Wealthtender community members. In addition to digital presence and SEO optimization, there are plenty of opportunities for financial advisors like myself to be quoted in national news publications."
Deb Meyer, CFP®, CPA/PFS, CEPAWorthyNest
"Wealthtender is a great addition to other websites that new RIA business owners can get listed on. It helps us get leads, more press coverage, more opportunities to get into podcasts and further helps to prove our credibility.
The amount of support and help we all get for the cost of Wealthtender makes it easy to justify the cost. I'm confident I won't be off of Wealthtender for a long time, if ever."
Blaine Thiederman MBA, CFP®Progress Wealth Management
"Whether you're looking for tips on getting out of debt, making a career move, finding a financial planner (hello!), or something else personal finance-related, Wealthtender is a good place to start."
Ryan FirthMercer Street
"I can truly say that Wealthtender is a part of my team. They are in my corner, not only marketing my firm, highlighting my services, but cheering me on (as provided by the opportunity for us to post a blog, article, or other mention weekly, and then Wealthtender shares that with the rest of the world). Instead of me marketing my firm, which I can and still do, I know that Wealthtender is doing it as well. The price point is fantastic for the value that you receive."
Maggie Klokkenga, CFP®, CPAMake a Money Mindshift
"As a financial advisor for dentists, I'm happy to be showcased in this Wealthtender article that appears on the first page of Google when searching the term "financial planner for dentists". I'm not aware if I've directly received a referral from the article (yet). However, I'm getting referrals from other advisors who don't work with early career dentists that I've shared this article with to demonstrate expertise. That's incredible, and I'm very pleased with Wealthtender!"
Cecil Staton, CFP® CSLP®Arch Financial Planning
"As an advisor, educator, and entrepreneur, I understand very well how consumers and learners think and process information before making a decision. Even though I have spent countless hours updating and tweaking my own firm’s website to my liking, I still find myself referring prospective financial planning clients to my profile on Wealthtender BEFORE I even mention my website to them. Not only does Wealthtender provide additional guides and resources I can easily share with my current clients and prospects, the platform pulls together the most relevant information in one place so visitors know exactly who I am, what I offer, who I work with, how I charge, and what my interests are in a succinct fashion. At the end of the day, Wealthtender allows me to reduce information overload for prospective clients and more easily communicate my unique value proposition in an automated way that still remains personal at its core – which is the true key to building lifelong professional relationships in any profession."
Ross Riskin, DBA, CPA/PFS, CCFC, MS TaxRiskin Wealth Management
"I've enjoyed being a member of Wealthtender, there was just something I found so refreshing about the work you were doing and you were just and still are so authentic. So glad to have been one of the first members."
