VAN Propensity client survey


Coming soon


The Propensity Project is a survey of an adviser firm’s end clients. Through the project we aim to uncover the propensity for clients to stay with, recommend, and do more business with the firm.

We'll be running the survey again this year however in the meantime, you can access resources from the most recent report below, including the report of all the findings. 



The 2021 Satellite conference will be held later this year.

We'll let you know when registration opens and update you with further details in the coming months.
