Hedging a Portfolio Against Inflation: What Do I Use?

In light of years of monetary and fiscal stimuli, many believe the economy may be predisposed to inflationary pressures. In this webinar we will discuss how an allocation to commodities can hedge a portfolio from inflation as well as look at which asset classes have performed well in rising, falling and stable inflationary environments. We will also discuss why treasury-inflation protected securities (TIPS) may not be a suitable hedge against inflation.

  • A Powerful New Tool to Comply with the DOL's Fiduciary Rules Live 60 mins
    Presenter: Manish Malhotra
    IMCA® and CFP Board® CE credit eligible

    The Department of Labor’s new fiduciary rules define nearly every recommendation and decision advisors make related to retirement accounts as investment advice — from moving money to recommending funds and annuities.

    Advisors must now prove that their retirement income recommendations serve their clients’ best interests. In this webinar, Manish will provide an overview of the new rules and show how Income Discovery’s interactive toolset can aid in this process. During this session you will learn how:

    •The new fiduciary rules will affect advisors serving retirement investors;
    •Income Discovery’s tools generate optimal retirement income recommendations that reduce the risk and amount of shortfall and increase the average legacy; and
    •Income Discovery’s objective methodology can help ensure that advisors comply with the DOL’s fiduciary requirements and BICE rules.

    Manish will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

  • New Research: The Art & Science of Portfolio Optimization Recorded: Jul 14 2016 61 mins
    Presenter Adam Butler, CFA, CAIA
    IMCA® and CFP Board® CE credit eligible.

    Everyone makes active bets on asset allocation. But few do it thoughtfully.

    Thousands of asset allocation methodologies are compatible with efficient markets. That’s why advisors need to understand the implicit “bets” they place when constructing portfolios.

    The first webinar in our four-part series covered the role of asset allocation versus security selection in achieving clients’ long-term objectives and introduced the only portfolio that makes no active bets — the Global Market Portfolio (GMP).

    In this webinar, Adam will explore a variety of methods for constructing portfolios that deviate from passive GMP weights while expressing specific market assumptions. During this session you will learn:

    •The basic relationships between risk and excess returns;
    •Different ways to optimize diversification;
    •How to estimate risk and correlation in the portfolio-construction process; and
    •How the markets have historically priced different measures of risk and dynamic versus static portfolio assumptions.

    Adam will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

    Future webinars will explore the advantages of risk parity and introduce more active multi-asset "factor" strategies like Adaptive Asset Allocation.

  • Exposing the "Active Risks" of Passive Portfolios Recorded: Jun 30 2016 62 mins
    Presenter: Adam Butler, CFA, CAIA
    Many top minds in finance have shown that asset allocation is the primary determinant of long-term investment results. Others trumpet the virtues of passive management. Yet, many investors—and advisors—end up making unintended active bets in asset allocation—even when they think they’re investing passively.

    In this first part of a four-part webinar series, Adam Butler outlines a logical framework for asset allocation that is consistent with the most basic principles of finance. During this session, you will learn:

    •Why most investors’ asset allocation strategies inadvertently take an extremely active stance;
    •Why supposedly passive domestic 60/40 portfolios carry the highest risk of expressing surprisingly active views;
    •How one unique global asset allocation strategy allows advisors and investors to truly invest passively; and
    •How advisors can implement this strategy for their clients using cost-effective ETFs.

    Future webinars will explore the advantages of risk parity, and introduce more active multi-asset "factor" strategies like Adaptive Asset Allocation.

    Adam will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

    With interest rates still near all-time lows, making the right decisions for your clients’ bond holdings has never been more critical. Join Brian Battle for an eye-opening discussion of fixed-income allocations that seek to avoid exposing your clients to excessive risk. You will learn:

    •Why nobody can reliably predict future interest rates;
    •Key bond principles and their potential impact on your clients’ portfolios; and
    •How to use bond math and logic, rather than intuition, to make more effective fixed income decisions.

  • No Portfolio is an Island Recorded: Jun 7 2016 61 mins
    David Blanchett
    CFP® and IMCA® CE credit-eligible.

    Advisors who focus solely on managing the risk and return aspects of investments have a limited view of their clients’ financial “big picture.” Investors are demanding a more integrated financial planning and portfolio optimization approach that encompasses analysis of their assets and liabilities, liability risk, tax concerns and time horizons.

    In this presentation, David Blanchett will show advisors how to achieve a more holistic approach to planning. You’ll learn:

    • How to integrate each client’s wealth elements, including investable assets, human capital, real estate and pensions, into your analysis;
    • How to calculate the impact of varying asset and liability risks;
    • How to build an efficient income portfolio that complements assets designed to generate total return;
    • How to incorporate each client’s unique tax concerns into asset allocation and manager selection processes; and
    • Why longer investment durations don’t always mandate higher risk tolerance.

  • Knowledge, The Super Factor Recorded: Mar 17 2016 63 mins
    Steven Vannelli, CFA -- CIO Gavekal Capital
    New research on the next generation of smart beta products

    According to Morningstar, more than $544 billion is now invested in smart beta products, much of this in factor-based strategies. But the limitations of simple factor-based strategies make them unsuitable for “buy and hold” investors, who still tend to favor actively managed mutual funds.

    Gavekal Capital has identified a new “Super Factor” that breaks through the confines of simple factors. New research has shown that over the past 15 years this Super Factor not only outperformed all five of the most common simple factors, but also generated alpha.

    What is the Super Factor? Knowledge. Join us to learn how the Knowledge Factor captures the excess returns of companies that invest in innovation, offering long-term investors an alternative to factor-based ETFs and actively managed mutual funds.

    In this webinar, participants will learn:

    •The benefits and shortcomings of factor-based strategies;
    •How Gavekal Capital identifies companies that have a tendency to experience excess returns to create the Super Factor; and
    •How to apply this Super Factor in investment portfolios.

    Steven will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

  • How to Beat the Robos at their Own Game Recorded: Mar 8 2016 56 mins
    Bob Veres
    The venture-backed robo-advisor sites uncovered several weaknesses in the profession, and perhaps the biggest was the lack of a compelling, interactive web presence. To get a higher percentage of their referrals as clients, advisors need to create a more interactive and compelling “pre-engagement” online experiences. In this webinar, Bob will outline best practices for using technology to beat the robos and discuss cost-effective solutions for:

    •Improving your site’s percentage conversion of “visitors” to clients;
    •Enhancing your site’s “stickiness” with existing robo-like tools in four different vectors;
    •Leveraging the information gathered from user interactions to create personalized contact strategies for each prospect; and
    •Differentiating your firm from your competitors – both robo and human.

    Bob will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.
  • Taking the Fiduciary High Ground Recorded: Feb 22 2016 61 mins
    Blaine F. Aikin

Attendees will learn:

    •The origins of the fiduciary standard and its foundational principles:
    •The latest developments in federal fiduciary regulations;
    •The areas where regulation and professionalism converge; and
    •How professional standards of conduct for financial planners and advisors enable them to serve as effective fiduciaries for their clients.

  • First Impressions and the Science of Converting Prospects into Clients Recorded: Jan 5 2016 61 mins
    Presenter: Dan Solin
    The data is clear: Prospects make 60%-80% of their decisions in the first few minutes (or less!) after meeting you.
    That’s how long you have to convince them you are the advisor with whom they should place their trust.
    But even advisors who make positive first impressions can "snatch defeat from the jaws of victory" once the meeting begins. In the first part of this webinar, Dan Solin will discuss how to use the science of first impressions to immediately establish a positive image when meeting prospects for the first time. He will cover the impact of:
    •Clothes: How to select suitable attire, based on regional differences and the demographics of the prospect;
    •Facial expressions: How smiling, eye contact and other expressions of validation and empathy build trust;
    •Gestures: How to maximize the effectiveness of hand and arm movements; and
    •Touch: The “correct” method of hand-shaking and other ways to generate positive perceptions through touch.
    In the second part, Dan will leverage the latest findings from neuroscience researchers, studies on dating and relationships, and other sources to provide strategies for building empathy and trust with prospects, asking the right questions, avoiding conversational pitfalls and closing more business.
    Dan will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will also be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.
  • Retirement Income Planning with a QLAC Recorded: Dec 10 2015 61 mins
    Presented by Michael Finke, Ph.D., CFP® and Alan Assner
    New rules from the Treasury increase the attractiveness of longevity annuities held within IRAs. The ability to avoid required minimum distributions on qualified assets held within a QLAC provides additional deferral benefit that reduces the net costs of annuitizing a portion of retirement wealth. Longevity annuities pool later-life longevity risk, providing a lower cost and safer way to fund later life income within a retirement income plan. This presentation includes new analyses on:
    •How the QLAC rules allow a retiree can achieve significant pooling benefits of a longevity annuity with little tradeoff in expected legacy amount
    •The reduction in cost of funding later life income through a product that pools longevity risk
    •Improvements in shortfall risk in simulations that include a QLAC
    •The behavioral benefits of providing a guaranteed source of later-life income

    Presenters: John Mauldin, Frank Trotter Moderated by Larry Siegel
    This webinar is eligible for CE credit.

    Two industry thought leaders face off on the most contentious economic issue confronting advisors and investors today: the Fed’s stance on interest rates.

    In this live, Munk-style debate moderated by Larry Siegel, John and Frank will take opposing sides on the following proposition:

    The time is right for the Federal Reserve to start raising interest rates

    John will speak in favor of the proposition, while Frank will argue that the Fed’s current stance should continue. During the debate, both speakers will address various topics, including:
    •The relationship between inflation, economic growth, and Federal Reserve interest-rate policy;
    •The positive and negative effects of a zero interest rate policy on the economy and markets;
    •The risks of raising rates; and
    •Why higher interest rates may boost savings and consumption.

    John and Frank will answer attendees’ questions during the webinar and will also be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint. Attendees can also vote on the proposition both before and after the debate. Results for both votes will be compared to determine the “winner.”

    Many couples avoid talking about personal finances with their partner. This “money silence” often leads to confusion, discomfort and conflict when couples meet with an advisor to discuss their financial future.

    Advisors are in a unique position to help couples and families shatter this silence by engaging in wealth conversations that foster trust and increase the likelihood that their financial planning efforts are successful. In this live webinar and Q&A session, Kathleen will discuss strategies for engaging clients in wealth conversations that enable advisors to:

    - understand typical client money mindsets and their associated financial beliefs and behaviors;
    - incorporate open discussions of wealth into client cultivation efforts, client meetings and ongoing communications to build trust; and
    - educate staff members and fellow advisors on the benefits of using wealth conversations to enhance the advisory process.

    During the session Kathleen will answer advisors’ questions and will be available afterward to discuss her presentation on APViewpoint.

  • Generating Tax Alpha with Effective Asset Location Recorded: Jul 8 2015 64 mins
    Presenter Michael Kitces with Moderator Robert Huebscher
    While asset allocation and diversification are standard practices among advisors, the question of how to identify and optimize asset class locations to address each client’s time horizons, and the expected return and tax efficiency of the underlying investments, is far more challenging. In this live webinar and Q&A session, Michael will explore various ways advisors can:

    -assess the value and potential costs of utilizing an asset-location strategy with their clients;

    -build an asset-location priority list based on the expected return and tax efficiency of various assets; and

    -illustrate the benefits of incorporating asset allocation into an advisor’s investment and financial planning regimen.

    Michael will also describe how asset location priorities shift based on portfolio turnover and dividend rates, and how to optimize the location of stocks to deliver greater tax efficiency.

    During the session Michael will answer advisors’ questions and will be available afterward to discuss his presentation on APViewpoint.
