“On the Circuit” is a podcast where conversation sparks innovation, hosted by Johnny Sandquist from Three Crowns Marketing. This season, his guests include industry conference attendees from across the country.
With a good idea and good timing, Doug Fritz changed the consulting game in the wealth management industry.
“The consulting business is feast and famine,” said the Founder and CEO of F2 Strategy, a wealth management technology services firm.
“You get a project, you get paid, and then you’re either doing the work, which means you’re not talking to new people about new work, or you’re out there selling. And so it’s just a lumpy cycle.”
But Doug thought, what if you could smooth out the revenue and create a retainer-based consulting business? And from there, business took off.
The company refined their services and hired experts in nuanced specialties like digital, data and CRM. And then perfect timing comes into play. The industry realized technology was a must if firms and advisors wanted to grow.
Doug and F2 Strategy had the solution ready when it was most needed.
And now, nearly half a year after acquiring Oakbrook Solutions in June 2023, F2 Strategy continues to strengthen its services. The acquisition added new capabilities and human capital. F2 Strategy has the resources to compete with larger consulting firms and work on multiple-year technology transformation projects.
With experience as Chief Technology Officer and in the consulting space, Doug has a pulse on what’s next for the industry, and how advisors can scale it down into their business.
Doug dives into the power of data, the untapped potential of industry executives in career transitions and more in episode 36 of “On the Circuit.” He joins “On The Circuit” host Johnny Sandquist in a conversation recorded live from the Fearless Investing Summit in October 2023 in Miami.
