A Debate on the DOL Fiduciary Rule

The replay is eligible one IMCA® CE credit

Provisions of the DOL’s fiduciary rule went into effect on June 9, but the controversy over its impact on advisors and clients continues. In this live, Munk-style debate moderated by Bob Huebscher, Tom and Knut will take opposing sides on the following proposition:

The benefits to investors and society of implementing the DOL fiduciary rule far outweigh the costs

Knut will speak in favor of this proposition, while Tom will argue against it, covering issues such as:
•Should the decision to work with an advisor who adheres to the fiduciary standard or the suitability standard be left to investors, rather than the government?
•Will the rule create administrative burdens and liability risks that will discourage advisors from serving retirement clients?
•Will registered representatives moving from commission-based to fee-based compensation no longer be willing to take on clients with smaller pools of retirement assets?

Knut and Tom will answer attendees’ questions during the session and will be available to continue the discussion on APViewpoint.

  • Is Your Client’s Gender Costing Her a Fortune? Recorded: Oct 5 2017 61 mins
    Presenter: Kathleen Burns Kingsbury
    The replay is eligible one IMCA® CE credit

    Despite women’s rising economic power, many female clients face financial discrimination. The gender wage gap, the lack of funding for women entrepreneurs, and the “pink tax” levied on many products and services makes it challenging for these clients to accumulate wealth at the same rate as their male counterparts.

    Money silence just makes this bad situation worse.

    These women need savvy advisors to teach them “money talk” skills so they can stop paying such a high price for their gender.

    In this webinar presentation, Kathleen Burns Kingsbury explains why the cost of money silence is especially high for women and offers practical strategies advisors can use to empower these clients to negotiate more and pay less.

    Attend and discover:
    •The high price women (and their families) pay for money silence
    •Common myths about women and money that could be costing you business
    •Practical strategies for teaching women negotiation skills
    •How joining the Breaking Money Silence® Revolution makes good business sense

    All participants receive a bonus chapter, “Is Your Gender Costing You A Fortune?” from Breaking Money Silence: How To Shatter Money Taboos, Talk More Openly, and Live a Richer Life, to be published September 30, 2017.

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

    Presenter: Kirk Lowe
    Any financial expert willing to invest time and effort into developing and sharing their wisdom can become an online financial influencer in whatever niche suits you best.

    •Separates you from other advisors
    •Enhances the value of your firm’s offering
    •Makes you more attractive to your ideal prospect
    •Fits in your marketing strategy

  • A New Approach to Sustainable Spending in Retirement Recorded: Aug 2 2017 62 mins
    Presenter: Wade Pfau
    The replay is eligible for one IMCA® CE credit

    The probability-based school of thought on retirement income investing, with its emphasis on total-portfolio return, has dominated financial planning since the 1990s. But is it still relevant today? In this session, Wade will examine the core methodology and assumptions behind this approach and discuss how time-segmentation strategies offer a more holistic alternative. Advisors will learn:

    • Why longstanding assumptions about safe withdrawal rates and the “4% rule” may no longer be relevant;
    • How time segmentation allows clients to use varied investment strategies and vehicles to generate needed income during different phases of their retirement;
    • How time segmentation helps advisors deliver more customized, needs-based retirement-income planning solutions for their clients.

    Michael Falk
    The replay is eligible for one IMCA® CE credit.
