The Tiburon Toolkit is a set of thirteen FREE web-based business benchmarking tools that Tiburon has developed for various types of financial advisors. Each tool allows some group of advisors the ability to benchmark their business operations. Tiburon provides these tools free to practitioners as a goodwill gesture and to collect aggregate data for its own use. Any advisor who completes one of the benchmarking surveys can view and print relevant comparison graphs and advisors who complete all 35-42 questions of any survey can download a free copy of Tiburon's 200-300 page summary research report (retail value $5,000).
The Tiburon Tools have been a big hit. Over 4,000 advisors have benchmarked their business practices. And the tools have won two awards already!
Tiburon has introduced thirteen benchmarking tools over the past three years:
Tiburon is not alone in this endeavor. Business Technology Alliance (BTA) has been a key Tiburon partner. BTA has developed the technology underpinnings of the benchmarking tools. HD Vest Financial Services and the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) have also been key partners in promoting the tax professional tool.
Tiburon's strategy is to share the cost and effort, as well as the branding and aggregate data benefits, with other firms trying to add value to advisors.
