This is a smart move from M&G Investments.  They don’t reinvent the wheel, they partner with an active, trusted, online community of financial advisors.  They leverage their credibility, their knowledge and their resources to provide one of the most critical elements of any social media strategy, content.  And here, content compliant with the financial regulation for advisors who don’t have the time or the resources to tap social media actively on daily basis.  This is an excellent experiment.

I’ve always championed the role of ambassador for the small businesses or for your intermediaries (financial advisors, tied insurance agents, brokers) in banking, insurance and investment.  The best example from the financial services industry, once again, is American Express with their new service which helps small businesses boost their social media and online presence.

We invite you to share your thoughts about the role of mobile technology in banking, here, via twitter or on our Facebook page.
