Advisor Intent Trends
Discovery Data Advisor Intent Indices are the leading measure of financial advisor buying intent, tracking changes in advisor interest on specific industry topics over time.
Not surprisingly, given the Federal Reserve's interest rate increases, all categories of Bonds trended upwards in September with the biggest jump in Treasuries. Interest in Equities broadly increased as advisors look for clues on the direction of markets and how to manage volatility. Advisors demonstrated less interest in Commodities which is likely due to acceptance of high energy prices and focus on the equity and bond markets. Interest in Practice Management related topics trended downwards in September, which is no doubt a reflection on advisors' focus on market volatility and their clients' portfolios.
About Advisor Intent Indices
Advisor Intent Indices empower product distributors, recruiters, marketers, and data scientists with highly accurate first-party information on industry-level and advisor-level intent in near real-time. Co-developed by Discovery Data and AdvisorTarget, Advisor Intent Indices use a scoring model to compare advisors’ overall engagement with financial news to individual engagement, providing month-to-month trends for gauging changes in advisor interest. With a range from 0 (no interest) to 200 (overwhelming interest), the score indicates the level of interest on each topic the indices track.
Discovery Data’s website publicly tracks four Advisor Intent Indices on Practice Management, Commodities, Equities, and Bonds, and reports a monthly news summary on the changes. Clients can subscribe to Discovery Data’s Intent Trends to access Advisor Intent Indices on over 40 topics and subcategories. Custom topics are available upon request, and pre-qualified leads within each index can be delivered through Discovery Data’s Intent Signals.
