Many believe the dreams associated with the tech and telecom bubble more than 20 years ago are turning into reality today; yet disruptive innovation strategies like the ARK Innovation ETF (ARKK) have been crushed recently, apparently by fears of another tech and telecom bust. In fact, the decline over the last 15 months has been more severe than the decline following the Nasdaq peak on March 10, 2000. ARK critics are suggesting that the rebound from this bear market will be muted and will take years. The team at ARK has a different perspective.
 
Join Financial Advisor Magazine, ARK Investment Management, and Magnifi by TIFIN for a panel discussion about:

Michael Episcope

Co-CEO

Origin Investments
 

 

Since the beginning of the year, stocks and bonds have been under immense selling pressure due to rising inflation and increasing concerns over a potential recession. In a traditional 60/40 portfolio, bonds have historically played an important role in generating stable income and reducing risk, while stocks seek to deliver growth and capital appreciation. However, the rapid onset of inflation has caused the lure of the 60/40 portfolio to crumble and has forced many advisors to look to alternative asset classes such as private real estate to help achieve their clients’ financial goals. Today, more advisors than ever are considering private real estate for their clients’ portfolios in search of the inflation-protected returns, passive income and public market diversification that a private real estate investment offers.

Prudently entering into a new alternative asset class like private real estate can be both challenging and a heavy lift for advisors and requires careful research and due diligence. With a host of investment strategies, structures and managers out there, finding the real estate manager and strategy that is the best fit for your clients is key for successful execution.  
 
In this webinar, Origin investments Co-CEO 
Michael Episcope will provide an overview of the different ways to invest in private real estate, how to avoid unforeseen landmines and how to evaluate the best options and managers available. He will discuss the differences between operators and crowdfunding platforms; syndications and funds; fees and reporting structures; and incentive mechanisms that ensure alignment between managers and investors.

Too few Americans have sufficiently prepared for their financial futures. Lifelong habits and attitudes toward money often influence spending and investing decisions, which can impact the ability to save for a home, pay for college, fund retirement, and cover healthcare costs throughout life. Behavioral finance strikes at the root of whether investors reach their investment goals. The potential for a changing market landscape — and changing client conversations — makes this a timely and must-have discussion.
 
The link between behavior and financial outcomes is often unseen. Help your clients see clearly.

Demand for ESG Investing is Surging. Since the 1990s, the movement among investors to “vote with their wallets” in support of companies that are making a positive impact has taken off. Today, with more than $35 trillion in assets worldwide, fund managers are broadly using ESG criteria to identify both risks and opportunities. In spite of growing demand, many advisors are still hesitant to talk to clients about ESG investing. One reason for this is the perception that doing good comes at a cost of earning competitive returns.
 
Financial Advisor Magazine is excited to help change this narrative through our upcoming webinar featuring Boston Common Asset Management, Conscious Endeavors and Magnifi by TIFIN. Join our virtual panel for an interactive discussion about:
 
  • How advisors can fulfill a dual mandate of financial return and social change
  • Shareowner engagement tools, success stories, and 2022 trends
  • Investing frameworks that help address gender-based violence
  • Technology that enables advisors to discover new impact investments

Many investors have never experienced the extensive risks and destructive portfolio impact that high inflation inflicts. Investors last faced inflation risk in the early-to-mid 2000s with the most notable bout of inflation occurring in the 1970s.
 
Over the last several months, the inflation debate has evolved from whether there would be any inflation at all to how high and how long it will last. With the first part of the debate seemingly settled and the answers to the magnitude and duration questions pointing toward higher and persistent, the need for investors to reconsider their portfolio exposures has taken on even more importance.
 
Join David Schassler, Portfolio Manager and Head of Quantitative Investment Solutions, for an examination of current inflation drivers and how to adapt allocations using real assets, including gold, commodities, and natural resources equities, to offset its potentially detrimental effects.
 
In this upcoming webcast, topics will include:

  • Parallels to the High Inflation Regimes of the 1970s and 2000s
  • Historical Real Asset Outperformance Compared to Traditional Assets
  • Managing Portfolios to Hedge Inflation Risk in Today’s Cycle

The Great Wealth Transfer is upon us. About $68 trillion in wealth will change hands in the U.S. in the next twenty years, with much of it being passed on to millennials (27 to 41-year-olds) and Gen Z (18 to 25-year-olds), according to Cerulli Associates.
 
But to take full advantage of this unprecedented opportunity, advisors will have to deeply understand what younger investors are likely to demand in a financial advisor. Counting on your clients’ children to stay the course and invest the way their parents did is a likely recipe for disappointment. And new clients will also be driven more by expectations around personalization and technology, and less by loyalty or legacy models.

Your future Ideal Clients are people with money who are currently doing business with other advisors.

Advisors know growing their practice depends on optimal tax management — fully 80% of investors expect their advisors to minimize their taxes. But the vast majority of advisors conduct tax-loss harvesting only at year's end, missing out on major opportunities, and nearly half rely on less-than-optimal tools like email and spreadsheets to monitor portfolio performance. This “optimization gap” leads many advisors to worry they could lose clients due to a lack of effective tax management.

Join us for a webinar on March 31 at 2:00 p.m. EST to discuss up-leveling your practice with up-to-date tax management strategies that save time, meaningfully optimize performance, and put you in a position to take proactive advantage of market conditions.

David Scherer - Co-CEO, Origin Investments

 

According to the National Association of Realtors, more than 700,000 new apartment units were absorbed by renters in 2021, representing 50% more units than the pre-pandemic high and outpacing the roughly 360,000 new apartments delivered in 2021. This supply and demand imbalance is expected to continue, creating unprecedented opportunities for investors looking to generate outsized returns by investing in multifamily ground-up development.  

 

In this webinar, Origin Investments Co-CEO David Scherer will discuss the tailwinds in the current market environment that have Origin bullish on multifamily development, such as increased rent growth, rising inflation and shortage in housing supply. He’ll also discuss how private multifamily real estate benefits an investor’s portfolio and why an increasing number of advisors are allocating their clients’ portfolios to private real estate. 

 

Origin Investments is a private real estate manager that provides best-in-class real estate solutions for RIAs and their clients. They’ve been building, buying and lending to multifamily projects in fast-growing markets throughout the U.S. for 15 years. They rank in the top decile of best-performing private real estate fund managers ranked globally by Preqin, an independent provider of data on alternative investments.

Accurately predicting price inflation is one of the most important prerequisites for predicting the outlook for the stock and bond markets. A bad inflation forecast almost certainly will result in bad investment choices in all the major financial markets.

In this video webinar, legendary Wall Street economist and investment strategist Dr. Ed Yardeni reviews the history of inflation. He assesses the various measures that are used to track both prices and wages and examines various inflation models--including the war & peace paradigm, the Phillips curve (cost push), the output gap (demand pull), monetary velocity, productivity, and the Age Wave. Dr. Ed also discusses deflationary forces and the Fed’s inflation targeting approach.

Advising Clients Through The Controllable Factors And Uncontrollable Risks Of A Retirement Spending Plan

Complimentary Webcast

Video replay will be available soon.

 

Featuring

VP, Hedge Business Development

 

A critical element of a successful retirement spending plan is creating consistent and sustainable income. When creating a plan there are four main variables you can control: the client’s retirement age, pre-retirement contributions, retirement income amount, and the asset allocation of the portfolio. After identifying a spending plan based on what clients can control, the plan is still exposed to four major uncontrollable risks: longevity, market returns, inflation, and portfolio shocks.

This session uses Monte Carlo analysis to help you better understand the impact of changing the factors clients can control as well as how sensitive the portfolio may be to uncontrollable risks. Additionally, we’ll evaluate the efficacy of adding a registered indexed linked annuity (RILA) with guaranteed lifetime income through an income benefit rider that is available for an additional cost to a traditional equity and bond portfolio to help clients better handle the uncontrollable risks they will face in retirement.

In this course we will:

  • Discuss factors you can help clients control when advising them on their retirement plans and how each recommendation affects the plan’s chance of success.
  • Discuss uncontrollable factors and how big of an impact they can have on an overall retirement plan
  • Show recommended retirement portfolios which include a RILA with the opportunity for increasing income available through a rider for an additional rider fee which can improve outcomes when facing the uncertainty of retirement.

This innovation transforms how you find more “advisor alpha” and manage income streams for your pre-retiree and retired clients.  

 

Advisors who take control of the retirement conversation early are highly successful at retaining clients through the spend-down or withdrawal phase. Many advisors avoid the conversation about retirement because they use the incorrect platform to handle clients' decumulation needs during the withdrawal phase.  Advisors who proactively discuss the retirement needs of their clients with the right platform have a secret weapon. They use technology to take control of the retirement conversation and help efficiently serve the unique needs of Boomer clients.

With the internet becoming increasingly affordable and accessible, billions of people in the developing world are now leapfrogging traditional consumption patterns and starting to consume online for the first time. The result of this rising middle-class consumer wave has transformed economies and produced new internet giants equal to or larger than their U.S. counterparts. While the Emerging Market internet and ecommerce story has been largely focused on China thus far, the story is evolving and accelerating to companies and consumers in India, Southeast Asia, South America and Africa. 

 

Kevin will delve into the greater influence of this new consumer wave and the fundamental changes taking place in developing economies beyond China, their preference for online services and shopping via the smartphone and how Gen-Z will drive the next wave of this growing digital revolution.

 

What's covered:

 

  • How to capitalize on the next 5 billion connected consumers in the developing world beyond China
  • How Mercado Libre (NASDAQ: MELI), SEA Ltd. (NYSE: SE) and Coupang (NYSE: CPNG) are reshaping Next Frontier Emerging Markets
  • Review of recent internet and ecommerce IPOs in Turkey, Indonesia, Uruguay and even Kazakhstan
  • Blockbuster Indian IPO Paytm, and the large pipeline of IPOs coming in India, Southeast Asia, and South America including Flipkart, NuBank, Grab, and GoTo

The Pitfalls Of Hedged Equity—What Every Advisor Should Ask

The Hedged Equity investment category continues to gain in popularity as investors look to lock in gains from all-time market highs while still participating in the equity markets. But hedging comes at a cost as nothing on Wall Street is free. The tactics used by Wall Street to pay for these hedges will vary by strategy. Despite varying tactics, the industry has one common characteristic: low upside capture due to the drag of the hedge. In this webcast, we will explore the tactics these strategies deploy and how the strategies can (and do) go wrong in the Hedged Equity portfolios resulting in low upside capture. 

 

We take a deep dive on the 25 largest Hedged Equity mutual funds and identify which tactics are deployed and which managers disclose the win/loss results of these tactics.  In other words, which managers are transparent about whether they are adding value to the portfolio with these tactics. When the advisor is done with this webcast, he/she will be ready to ask the tough questions of any Hedged Equity manager to perform a proper due diligence. 

 

We will end the webcast with a profile of Alpha DNA’s Hedged Equity solutions and how Alpha DNA is utilizing machine learning and alternative data analytics to build a better mouse trap for Hedged Equity investors. Alpha DNA has one of the best upside captures in this space so they are uniquely qualified to profile these tactics for investors.

1Source: NCREIF as of 1978-2020. Private real estate is represented by the NCREIF Open-End Diversified Core (ODCE) Index, an equal weighted, time weighted index representing a blended portfolio of institutional-quality real estate funds reported net of management and advisory fees (with the exception of the private real estate income data shown, which is reported gross of management and advisory fees). The term core typically reflects lower risk investment strategies, utilizing low leverage and generally represented by equity ownership positions in stable U.S. operating properties. Funds are weighted equally, regardless of size. While funds used in this index have characteristics that differ from net asset value (NAV) REITs (including differing management fees), Black Creek Group’s management believes that the NCREIF ODCE Index is an appropriate and accepted index for the purpose of evaluating returns on investments in NAV REITs.

A massive amount of money is set to change hands over the next several years, peaking in 2030, according to some estimates. Even before we reach that tipping point, Gen X and Millennials are projected to control just under 50% of the wealth in the US. But how they expect that wealth to be invested and put to work often contrasts with their parents’ and grandparents’ views – giving rise to frustration among some Next-Gen inheritors and sometimes a general apathy toward the wealth that will be entrusted to them. In this session, advisors, wealth planners and investment professionals will explore how the increasingly popular ESG investing, otherwise known as responsible investing, can bridge the gap between generations. Panelists will also provide ideas on what advisors can do to successfully facilitate wealth transfer discussions.

Cerulli recently unveiled a major disconnect — 58% of advisors said their clients were not interested in ESG, while 44% of clients surveyed said they were. Broaching the topic of impact investing for the first time can be intimidating: You don’t want to imply there is something wrong with a client’s current portfolio or seem judgmental by pointing out a lack of ESG investments. But if you don’t bring it up, you could miss an opportunity to deliver something clients truly desire. 

 

Hear from Kelly Baldoni and Kathleen McQuiggan about how to introduce sustainable investing concepts to your clients in a way that demonstrates your value as an advisor. They will cover how to identify clients and prospects who may be interested in sustainable investing; questions that can help you initiate a conversation; and strategies for engaging in a dialogue about impact and sustainability issues that will deepen your relationship with clients.

As bonds continue to generate low yields and equity markets at all-time highs, there is a significant risk-gap in portfolios, especially for retirees and pre-retirees.  Structured Notes can fill this gap by increasing yield while preserving risk targets. In addition, these strategies can establish protection on equities without compromising growth. Used by private bankers for their ultra-wealthy clients, structured notes have been a slow and inefficient market, with no transparency, little liquidity, high fees and even higher investment minimums.  

 

In this session, Jason Barsema, Co-Founder and President of Halo Investing will show how technology can be used to simplify Structured Notes with instant and competitive pricing, customizable terms, transparent fees, secondary liquidity, post-trade life-cycle management and investment minimums as low as $1,000. He’ll also show how Structured Notes fit into portfolios and how financial advisors can use this unique asset-class to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.  

 

During this session, advisors will learn how Structured Notes can be used to:

 

  • Generate higher yields 
  • Manage volatility 
  • Establish protection in portfolios
  • Create a buffer against the sequence of returns risk

We are living in times that are taxing individual advisors capacity for coaching and counseling clients and for keeping themselves in the proper frame of mind. What some once called the 'touchy feely' stuff has now been recognized as being essential; highly developed listening skills, ability to communicate in difficult situations, bringing empathy and resonance to every conversation. Hard Times Require Soft Skills will serve as a reinforcement for all advisors on how to deliver what matters most and how to deliver it effectively.

If female investors control an estimated $14 trillion in investable assets and 51% of personal wealth in the U.S. 1, then why does this important and fast-growing segment of investors still feel largely misunderstood by the financial services industry? Transamerica has developed a Women and Investing program where they discuss best practices for communicating with and serving female investors throughout their various life milestones. They will dive into three topics that could affect their retirement: grey divorce, caregiving, and widowhood. The goal is to continue the conversation on the importance of working with women as clients and how to address their unique circumstances, especially as they approach retirement.

This webcast will be focused on key trends, opportunities and risks facing the global equity markets in 2021.

His unique insights in managing through global market corrections will help educate investors on how to maximize the risk and return trade off opportunity after an economic crisis event. Where to invest now is probably one of the most important questions facing investors. What factors should investors carefully analyze before executing their asset allocation strategy. What are the critical investing opportunities and risks for investors and why this time it may truly be different. 

 

The webcast will cover and provide invaluable insight to the following topics: 

  • The Great Rotation – Is market leadership going to change 2021?
  • The Pandemic Outlook – What areas of healthcare will prosper during the vaccine rollout?
  • Trade Wars and Tariffs - What is the implication of a new administration on global trade?
  • The Work from Home Trend - Have behaviors permanently shifted…who are the winners and losers?
  • The Outlook for Emerging Markets – Will Emerging Markets Outperform the US?
  • Opportunities in China - Will a post pandemic China emerge stronger than ever?
  • Why Quality Matters – Is event risk increasing or decreasing in a post Trump world?

Co-Founder, ROL Advisor
 

 

Financial services professionals around the world are experiencing a historic inflection point in our industry. Ever-increasing regulation, heightened scrutiny, and eroded value propositions have collided and exposed just how similar most financial advisors’ services are. Toss in the accelerating pace of technological change and the generational-defining effects of Covid-19 and we have a perfect storm of disruption for the unprepared advisor.

 

The only value-proposition that can withstand the earthquake happening in our industry is the one that puts the client’s life at the center of the conversation.

 

Life-centered planning is a discovery process focusing on who the client is instead of the assets he or she has. By using this revolutionary model, advisors can demonstrate to clients how every aspect of their lives has an impact on their wealth-building or wealth-protecting process.

 

In this two-part educational event, industry veteran and coach Steve Sanduski, CFP® facilitates a conversation with life-centered planning pioneers Mitch Anthony and Paul Armson, authors of the new book, Life Centered Financial Planning: Helping Your Clients Get a Greater Return on Life.

 

In this exclusive conversation, you’ll learn:

 

  • What matters most to clients

  • Why a strong financial plan is much more than simply accumulating as much money as possible

  • How to build a business model that is good for everyone involved: the financial advisor, clients, and the organization

  • How to move from being a commodity to repositioning yourself as your client’s trusted advisor

  • And much more

Featuring

Morley Ivers - President of OS33

 

The future of work is here… and here to stay. Today’s financial advisor is working remotely using personal (BYOD) devices and expects flexible any-device access to the apps and data necessary to get the job done.

 

This do-anything-anywhere-anyhow expectation fails to protect sensitive company data and creates new technology challenges for regulated financial services firms posing increasingly unacceptable business risks including data breaches, regulatory actions, damage to brand/reputation and loss of revenue.

 

With 72% of companies citing data leakage/loss as the top security concern related to BYOD, CEOs, CISOs, CCOs and technology leaders are caught between a rock and a hard place. How do these executives enable advisor flexibility without compromising security and FINRA compliance in 2021 and beyond?

 

Join Morley Ivers, President of OS33, to review the steps that over 400 financial services firms have already taken with Workplace to gain the visibility and control needed to mitigate the risks associated with BYOD and remote work while bolstering advisor productivity.

Hidden behind the March 2020 bear market and the COVID-19 pandemic is a new golden age of financial advice that provides a unique opportunity for the advisors and firms willing to answer the call. Baby Boomers have driven the modern economy and are now moving from accumulation to distribution – just as pundits have been forecasting for 30 years. This isn’t new information, so why is the industry still not fully prepared? What does that “Next Chapter” hold for clients, their advisors and the firms that supply critical resources and innovation? What kind of advisors and leaders will be needed in the future?

 

During this webcast, we’ll discuss the four pillars of Next Chapter and how they can drive better outcomes for managing retirement:

 

  • Better Planning – Better application, integration and adoption of planning tools, including simpler and more approachable “unbundled” planning.
  • Supporting Longevity and Financial Wellness – Better understanding of the real-life transitions of longevity, how to support clients’ life and health, and integrating health and wealth.
  • Harnessing the Power of Technology – Better adoption of appropriate technology, including CRM and data, alongside human capabilities, leveraging the impact of machines, and creating capacity for essential human actions.
  • More Effective Retirement Income Solutions – Better deployment of a broader array of financial planning and retirement income solutions and products, including protected lifetime income and creative solutions that incorporate tax efficiency and managing household assets.

Parnassus Investments believes that high-quality companies can be identified by assessing the strength and durability of their moats (sustainable competitive advantages), evaluating their long-term relevancy, scrutinizing the effectiveness of their management teams and developing an understanding of their ESG risks and opportunities.

 

In this webcast, Parnassus Mid Cap Fund portfolio managers Matthew Gershuny and Lori Keith will discuss how to assess business quality, regardless of whether markets are rising or falling.

 

Join us for this exclusive webcast to learn how to identify company characteristics that Parnassus believes will help advisors position client portfolios to perform well over the full market cycle.

Erin Botsford, CFP™ - Advisor, Author and Trainer, The Advisor Authority™

 

A crisis always reveals the nature and character of an advisor’s business. Advisors who proactively seek opportunities in times of crisis come out way ahead when the storm has passed. In this three-part series, Erin will discuss what she did during and right after the crises of 1991, 2000-2003 and 2008 to shore up and reassure her existing clients, proactively prospect and "dominate" her marketplace, and create the ultimate leverage by empowering her team. 

 

 

Part One: “Power Tools”

 

Erin will go through two important exercises (COVID / Fear & Worry Manager™) to first get clarity for yourself.  She then encourages you to share these exercises with your clients and prospects. Helping them see life beyond the current crisis will build confidence and relationships that can last a lifetime. She will discuss:

 

  • Put Your Own Mask on First – Be Sure You Can See the Light at the End of the Tunnel
  • Confidence is Contagious – Your actions Now will Determine Your Business Future
  • Find the Positives – Your demeanor will dictate your client's demeanor
  • Decide to GROW Your Client base – This is the time to take your practice to the next level

 

Part Two: “Dominate Your Marketplace”

 

After the past 11 years of stable market conditions, prospects have been less interested in taking calls or setting appointments with a new advisor. With current market uncertainty, however, prospects are unexpectedly eager to hear from you.  The first fifteen minutes of your call or time together in a virtual meeting will determine if you have a basis for going forward.  Erin will share her “Secret Sauce” in converting prospects into clients in the first meeting or virtual call. She will discuss:

 

  • Why you should always have both the prospect and the spouse on the call

  • Why women have absolute veto power

  • The power of a story – yours

  • “Disturbing Tracts” – using non-investment tools to turn the prospect into your next client

 

Part Three: “Build Your Machine”

 

After struggling in the business for the first 10 years, Erin was able to meet another advisor who had gone from $300,000 to $3 million in three years!  After spending one day with him, Erin was able to get to $3 million, then $4 million, and her business continued to grow from there.  In this webcast, Erin will discuss the following topics:

  • How the top job role for an assistant or team member is to protect this ONE thing for their advisor.

  • Three things the advisor should be doing in the business. Once you know those three things, the team should be doing EVERYTHING else!

  • Tasks and duties that can be assigned to team members to help make the practice efficient and help it grow.

  • How to train licensed staff to take over review meetings with B, C & D clients so advisors can focus on building the business.

 

This webcast will have exponential benefits to you and your staff, and Erin encourages you to listen with them at the same time. This will allow you to make decisions and take steps that will have an immediate impact on your business.

Debunking 529 Plan Myths: Ideas To Prospect & Deepen Client Relationships

Stephen Jobe - Director, 529 Plan Specialist, Legg Mason & Co., LLC

 

In recognition of 529 Day, join us for a discussion that will provide you with strategies to attract new clients, bring differentiated value to your existing clients and educate you on the many estate planning benefits of 529 plans.

Most clients don’t fully appreciate the power and flexibility of 529 Plans, such as:

  • “Use It or Lose It”?  Client maintains daily access — can take the money back if needed (e.g., for unforeseen medical expenses).1
  • Limited to Annual Gift Tax Exclusion?  Contribute up to $150k per Beneficiary (joint), or $400,000 or more per Beneficiary using the Unified Credit.2
  • Can Trusts be the Account Owner?  A client’s existing Trust can be the Owner of a 529 Plan to minimize trust income tax liability.
  • Protect Assets from Creditors?  Protect all assets in a 529 Plan from bankruptcy and creditors.3

1. If any monies withdrawn are not used for Qualified expenses, the earnings portion of the Distribution is subject to federal income tax (at the Distributee’s rate), and an additional 10% federal penalty, and any applicable state and local income taxes.  Disability of the Beneficiary is one of four exceptions to the 10% federal penalty.

2. This “Accelerated Gifting” strategy assumes no other gifts being made to the done by the contributor.  Contributions to an account for a beneficiary between $15,000 and $75,000 made in one year would be prorated over a 5-year period without incurring federal gift taxes or reducing an investor’s unified estate and lifetime gift tax credit.  If the account owner dies before the end of the 5-year period, a prorated portion of the contribution will be included in his or her taxable estate. If the investor contributes less than the $75,000 maximum, additional contributions can be made without incurring federal gift taxes, up to the annual gift tax exclusion of $15,000 per year.  Federal gift taxation may result if a contribution exceeds the available annual gift tax exclusion amount remaining for a given beneficiary in the year of contribution, if the investor has used up his/her unified estate and gift tax credit.  The Unified Credit against Estate Tax for 2019 is $11,400,000, per person, is adjusted annually for inflation, and sunsets on December 31, 2025.

3. See Plan Disclosure Statement for details.

 

An investor should consider the Program’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. The Program Disclosure Statement and Participation Agreement (www.scholars-choice.com/pds) contains more information and should be read carefully before investing. If an investor and/or an investor’s beneficiary are not Colorado taxpayers, they should consider before investing whether their home states offer 529 plans that provide state tax and other benefits such as financial aid, scholarship funds and protection from creditors that are only available to state taxpayers investing in such plans.

This pandemic has killed tens of thousands of people in the U.S., thrown millions onto the unemployment rolls, and knocked everyone out of kilter as our normal life patterns have been disrupted and severely restricted. And on top of that, we’re experiencing extreme market volatility.

The speakers will share their insights and experience in dealing with stressful situations and overcoming major challenges so you and your clients can exit this pandemic with strong momentum.    

 

In this exclusive conversation, you’ll learn about:

  • Increasing your resilience to outside shocks
  • How to prepare mentally for stressful situations
  • Why sometimes you need to slow down to speed up
  • Active versus passive coping styles
  • Mental obstacles that get in the way of living life to the fullest, and tools to transform those obstacles into lasting inner resources
  • Ways to regain control over your life that the pandemic cannot influence
  • How to draw upon your existing strengths to gain momentum coming out of the pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic will touch the lives of every American. For some it will have devastating consequences and every American will experience some form of disruption to their life and business.

The financial services industry is rapidly changing. New digital technologies – social, mobile, analytics and cloud – are creating fundamental shifts in both client and advisor attitudes, behaviors, and relationships. Most initiatives around building a better client experience focus too narrowly on the brand’s direct-to-consumer touch points. In both Insurance and Wealth Management, the majority of the client experience does not happen on a mobile application or client portal, it happens directly with the Advisor. The future landscape will continue to depend on Advisors as an essential part of the omnichannel experience, creating an advisor-client experience journey in an increasingly digital world.
