Hiring Michael was one of the best decisions we could have made.
“Our SaaS company markets to a very demanding advisor market. Michael was able to provide a “finely tuned” outside perspective that added actionable clarity and focus to our process. It took us over a week to integrate the two pages of notes from our meeting into our platform, but the results are already proving that hiring Michael was simply one of the best decisions we could have made.”

BovaMetrics was at a critical crossroad in terms of the deployment of our flagship product called Equilla. We decided we needed a knowledgeable Wealth Management consultant. We asked 8 people who they would recommend and 7 out of 8 said “Michael Kitces” was the “go to guy”. While we were slightly concerned with the pricing, we realized within the first 20 minutes of our 2hr virtual session that our money was very well spent. Within the two hour virtual consulting engagement we held with Michael, he not only answered all of our questions, he also told us what questions we weren’t asking and promptly answered them for us. Michael gave us insight that altered the way we viewed our product and our pricing.
We couldn’t be happier that we selected Ezra Group for our market analysis project. They did an outstanding job marrying their technology expertise with deep dive data research. Their team not only understood how our products fit in the asset and wealth management ecosystems, but also grasped our business challenges. They helped us size the global addressable market for our software and created a “sales battle map” that enabled our sales team to focus on those prospects with the greatest revenue potential. They integrated the market research with explanations of key industry trends that created tangible value for our firm. We enjoyed working with Ezra Group and highly recommend them.
We have been working with Michael on various financial planning issues and implication to our financial planning solution. Michael has provided extremely valuable insight. He not only share thought and suggestions from a technical perspective but also provided insight from an advisor point of view and potential impact on advisor’s business. We very much look forward to continuing working with Michael going forward.
As we develop new products to help Advisor’s grow their Practices, Michael’s perspective on the challenges and needs of Advisors have been an enormous help. His insight compelled us to re-examine previously held assumptions that could have taken us down the wrong roads. His balance of real-world micro and macro perspective of the wealth management business also opened our eyes to new opportunities that will propel our solutions into some exciting areas that we likely would not have not spotted without him.

We were thrilled with our 2 hour engagement with Michael. Our intention going into our consulting engagement with Michael was simple: we wanted to tap into his wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry in order to gain some additional insights and recommendations on the future-state of the market, challenges facing wealth advisors, and the competitive landscape. We wanted to delve into these topics without reaching the typical consulting pay-phone-like conclusion of “Well, time is up. Ante up a bunch more money for a longer consulting engagement to get what you really want”. In our 2 hours with Michael, he came well prepared, and provided us with the interesting and well informed perspectives we were looking for…and then concluded the session cleanly, with no lingering follow up items. Because Michael gave us what we were looking for at a fair price, with not even a whisper of follow on work, I’m confident we will tap into Michael again-and-again. He is what we all hope for in a consultant – an efficient, high ROI experience.
