Catering financial solutions for the dynamic wealth management world; Finolutions
“Don’t find customers for your products, find products for your customers”. This statement of Seth Godin has been the mantra for Mr. Apoorva Vora, Founder & CEO, Finolutions Wealthcare LLP.
He is a Law Graduate, a PG Diploma Holder in Taxation Laws, an MBA, a Certified Private Wealth Manager, a Certified Financial Planner and a member of Financial Planning Association, USA. Holding 33 years of experience in his mind and humbleness in heart, Mr. Vora proudly shared the tale of incorporating Finolutions, “After spending 21 years in financial services domain and working across various functions in financial services including Distribution, Private Client Groups, Portfolio Management Services, Research, Advisory Services, Products Development and Management, and Wealth Management, I witnessed that the wealth management segment was a barren land for mid and small sized players when it came to availability of right kind and adequate range of products and services. To bridge that gap, and dig out the right set of products and services, Finolutions was incorporated in 2013 as a B2B player, and with a mission to help each and every wealth management player (particularly catering to HNI/UHNI segment) to offer the apt products and services to the apt person.”
Wealth Management possesses different meanings to different people. While Wealth Management business has grown significantly for the last decade, Demonetization is particular has paved way for the renewed emergence of wealth managers or advisory firms on a broader term. This hazy situation drifted investors to financial assets from the earlier heavily skewed physical assets, namely gold and real estate. Finolutions had spotted the emergence of investing option beyond the traditional, particularly the alternative investment asset class. Growing wealth and shift of mindset from physical to financial asset base was enough to indicate this emergence. Finolutions transformed and updated wealth management products and services through its B2B wealth management business model. The Wealth Manager would then be responsible for the financial planning and asset allocations, and rely on the product and services edge of Finolutions for completing the customized investment solution for clients.
