‘Unfiltered: Duran + Kitces’: Personal Finance Industry Leaders Get Real in New Podcast

March 20, 2019

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 20, 2019--United Capital Financial Advisers LLC (“United Capital”), the country’s first and largest financial life management firm, today launches the inaugural episode of the “Unfiltered: Duran + Kitces” podcast series, an ongoing, open and authentic conversation between Joe Duran, United Capital’s CEO, and Michael Kitces, financial planner and industry influencer.

Embracing candid, honest talk, “Unfiltered: Duran + Kitces” invites listeners into an organic dialogue between Duran and Kitces, two far-sighted leaders whose distinct approaches to the industry have helped advisors transform their businesses, grow, and win. In 30-minute, single-take segments, Duran and Kitces offer a critical lens on themes that matter to advisors and actionable takeaways to apply to any practice.

“It’s always fascinating to talk about the industry with Joe. Our conversation on the 100th episode of the Financial Advisor Success podcast was so well-received by the advisor community that it’s already one of our most downloaded episodes ever,” Kitces said. “So we decided to just continue the conversation. I think any advisor who’s concerned about industry trends and how they will impact the future of their own business will find a lot of productive food for thought with our discussions!”

In the first episode, “The Innovation & Success Paradox,” Duran and Kitces engage in a free-wheeling conversation about creating opportunities through change, building a fintech roadmap, and other themes that matter for advisors eager to improve their businesses. Listeners will drive the discussions in future episodes through the submission of questions and suggested themes, keeping “Unfiltered: Duran + Kitces” raw and relevant.

“We created this podcast as a resource for advisors who want real, unvarnished takes on how to push the limits of innovation and help their clients live richly,” Duran said. “Michael and I have very different perspectives, and we look forward to sharing our candid thoughts to help our listeners better serve their clients and succeed as entrepreneurs.”

“Unfiltered: Duran + Kitces” debuts today on United Capital’s website and is now available on WealthManagement.com. Current and future episodes will also reside on iTunes and Google Play.
