Session 1: Why Insurance is Now Pivotal for RIAs


Insurance was once off limits to RIAs due to its commission-driven nature. Commissions also drove up costs, which limited the value of traditional insurance products. Now, as the advisory world is becoming increasingly commoditized and commission-free insurance solutions are more readily available, RIA’s need to bring insurance under their fiduciary umbrella to more holistically serve clients while expanding share of wallet. In this session, participants will learn the business case for implementing insurance in your Fee-Only practice, and how to get started.

Learning Objectives:
Understand the pricing components within the most commonly utilized life insurance and annuity products, and learn the questions to ask insurance carriers to differentiate between fee-based versus commissioned products.
Learn specific financial planning solutions that are associated with each insurance product available on the market, and when to properly incorporate it into a client's financial plan given their individual goals and needs.
Recall the steps and flow of conversation to follow when working with clients to uncover existing insurance policies, analyze them within the financial plan, and explore alternatives that can lead to economic success, through cost savings or benefit optimization.

Session 3-A: Putting Value on Your Value: Quantifying Benefits of Portfolio Construction, Wealth Management, and Behavioral Coaching Services


Using Vanguard's Advisor's Alpha research, this presentation focuses on helping financial planners quantify the ways to add value for clients through relationship-oriented services that can go beyond market out performance. While this has proven elusive for most investors, the study demonstrates how relationship-oriented value can add about 3% in net returns, depending on a client's circumstances, while also improving client retention.

Learning Objective(s)
1) Review the more reliable benefits of your client relationships beyond outperformance, which has proved elusive for most investors. 2) Quantify the relationship-oriented wealth management services outlined in Vanguard's Advisor's Alpha concept. 3) Summarize the benefits to planners, including better alignment with client needs and improved client retention.
