Webcast Outline



Do you have a personal retirement plan in place for yourself… a real one, that includes answers to “who, where, when, and how?”  Though most advisers won’t admit it, the “clock is ticking” on their own personal timing to develop a quality succession plan. Industry research shows that over 50 percent of financial professionals do not have an executable succession plan in place for themselves. Led by industry veterans in adviser succession, this webcast will provide you with specific details and resources to understand the nuances and challenges related to adviser succession, and how to confidently develop and/or complete your own succession plan.

Learning Objectives:

1. Review the challenges and opportunities of adviser business succession

2. Compare options available for business succession

3. Develop an action plan for your own retirement

4. Discover what your advisory practice is really worth
