How is MTM360 “Compliance-Friendly” (If Applicable)?
Multiple broker-dealers have quickly approved MTM360. Their determinations were strikingly similar: MTM360 does not provide “financial advice”. This platform is NOT eMoney or Money Guide Pro. We are NOT a tax or estate planning document software. Those platforms address the financial wealth, taxes and estate documents. Our digital system addresses the More Than Money (MTM) wealth. We provide a PDF with the entire platform that, upon sign up and notification, will be emailed directly to the appropriate compliance contact person. A member of the Aspida360 team will be available for phone calls and emails as they may arise with your compliance department. Obviously, we cannot guarantee compliance approval, but we have 100% success rate so far.
Once a subscriber, what level of support should I expect?
Responsive, email support from 9AM EST to 3PM EST, Monday through Friday. Holidays excluded. Most responses occur within a few hours, but we guarantee a resposne within one business day. Experience has taught us that most questions are minor and can be properly answered via email. If more beneficial, phone support is available. Please email the support team from your Advisor Dashboard requesting phone support or call us directly at 443-857-7050 x1. Also, our Chief Engagement Officer, Alan, Kendall, offers his 25 plus years of legacy planning experience to personally help you succeed with MTM360.

Development, Marketing and Sales Questions:
Define More Than Money (MTM)?
Research and experience have taught us that 77% of families believe their net worth is far more than their financial balance sheet. Legacy, life experiences, philanthropy, family traditions are valuable to most families. More Than Money (MTM) assets are the intangible assets a family holds dear. MTM360 provides the technology to define, protect, share, integrate and perpetuate a families’ More Than Money (MTM) assets while mitigating the high rate of wealth-transfer failure.
Why was MTM360 Created?
The professional advisory industry is defined by products and services. The professional planning strategies each advisor implements are far more similar than different. We are all, for the most part, lumped together.
There has to be a better way. In our commoditized and highly regulated industry, creating differentiation from our competitors is a truly daunting task. In addition, we all want a practice that consists of our best clients, and most of us would like to be the primary trusted advisor to these clients.
MTM360 was created to provide successful advisors with the opportunity to differentiate your business and increase its value, while positioning yourself as the prospect’s primary advisor. Now the question becomes what do many families need? Our extensive research and accelerated training answered this valuable question.
How was MTM360 Created?
Since the culmination financial events of 2008, we initiated continuous primary and secondary research to define, in detail, the concerns of the families. MTM360 families are constantly consulted and our secondary research sources include:
- Wharton Business School
- Rus Alan Prince
- The New York Times
The above list represents a sampling of the sources relied upon in our research. MTM360 platform and tactics were built on this very research. We discovered the primary concerns of a family are not being addressed by professional advisors. As our research uncovered the needs of these clients, we constructed a tactic or an entire section of the pentagon specifically addressing their concerns. The end result is a platform your prospect is likely seeking and you can now offer.
What target market was MTM360 designed for?
MTM360 was designed for any family that places value on their More Than Money assets. A family does not need to be “High Net Worth” to value their family unity, legacy, core values and life experiences. In a MorningStar study, baby boomers were provided with 5 assets they could transfer to the next generation, but could only select one. 77% chose “core values and life lessons” while 12% chose the traditional family wealth.
In addition, we researched in detail the nine personalities of family leaders. We discovered three would not be interested in MTM360 at all. The remaining six, totaling 67% of the market, are interested in a platform like MTM360. Finally, the largest percentage of family personalities are “The Family Steward” representing 34% of the market. The Family Steward values the well-being and future of its family first and foremost.
Can MTM360 serve as its own brand?
Yes. MTM360 is a turn-key brand providing multiple marketing and collateral materials with a well-defined target market. Logos, tag lines, five customized client brochures, a power point presentation and client videos are all provided when you sign up. In addition, Aspida360 has several forms of intellectual property filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
