Hosting client appreciation events is a good way to not only say thank you to clients, but to build relationships and do additional asset gathering, writes Trent Gain in a column at ThinkAdvisor.

Also, Amy Parvaneh, founder of the consulting firm Select Advisors Institute, discusses strategies for targeting high-net-worth prospecting during a podcast with Michael Kitces. “We are big, big, big proponents of going after your current clients and current contacts for getting more referrals as the best avenue for growth,” she tells him. Parvaneh offers a program called Referralytics, which helps advisors grow their firms through targeted, research-based referral introductions.
