Single-family offices are estimated to control more wealth than even the hedge fund industry, with investable family assets in the trillions. SFO executives are generally not money managers that select individual securities. Instead, they evaluate and align elite investment professionals. That makes SFOs appealing clients for investment managers as well as a wide array of professional teams serving ultra-wealthy individuals and families.

 

Accountants, attorneys, insurance experts, lifestyle service consultants, concierge medical professionals and family security experts have all successfully partnered with SFOs to enhance services for ultra-high-net worth clients.

 

Join family office sector experts Russ Alan Prince and Rick Flynn for a webinar on the most effective and proven methods for sourcing relationships and working with single-family offices. The session is designed for any professional or service provider who has the goal of forging relationships with a segment of the ultra-high-net worth universe that is obscure by design.

 

*Each attendee will receive a copy of The Family Office: Advising the Financial Elite

Too many high net worth (HNW) families fail to protect their assets from personal liability lawsuits, which can take years to litigate and result in awards and settlements well in excess of $10 million. It’s why many wealth advisors consider personal liability risk to be one of the most neglected components of a total wealth protection plan.

This course explores the liability exposures of HNW families and presents a five-step plan for addressing them. It compares the perceptions HNW individuals have about liability risk with the realities they face. It reviews how wealth and a wealthy lifestyle lead to increased liability risk, and how jury composition and widespread legal doctrines such as joint and several liability further increase this risk. The course will detail these families’ growing concerns, which include financial loss, stress of protracted legal proceedings, and damage to their reputations and earning power.

The five-step plan explains how HNW families can shield themselves from these risks, including what types and amounts of insurance coverage are needed and how to recognize important coverage differences between policies. Finally, it suggests how and when wealth advisors can raise liability protection as an issue with their HNW clients to both strengthen client loyalty and better fulfill their fiduciary duty.

High net worth individuals (HNWI) face unique investment challenges and risks. In order to successfully work with such investors advisors must have a detailed understanding of those risks. One of the unique challenges is the illiquidity of assets that are the source of wealth and income for the HNW family (family business, executive stock options, real estate etc.). If an investment portfolio experiences significant losses at the same time the source of wealth is losing value, family’s lifestyle and goals could be derailed. During the webinar we will show how advisors can use Portfolio Crash Testing to create personalized risk scenarios for HNW prospects and clients, how to present to them and how to hedge unacceptable risks with options using a simple interface.

Building a presence on social media sites like Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook can help financial advisors build a strong brand, attract new clients and enhance relationships with existing clients. But from a compliance standpoint, all too often, the message is clear: Stay away!
 
FINRA has determined that any registered representative who uses social media for business purposes is subject to the same regulations that would govern an in-person presentation or public appearance. And both FINRA and the SEC require all communications—including email and social media communications—to be captured and retained for six years

 
Non-compliance can be very costly. Just ask the broker/dealer that had to pay a $7.5 million fine last year for failing to properly manage its email archive.
 
But turning a compliance nightmare into a business opportunity is easier than you think!
 
Join us on June 26th for an overview of:
 

  • The regulations surrounding social media and email archiving.
  • How to avoid infractions and fines associated with social media and email archiving.
  • Laserfiche’s integrated email archiving and social media archiving solutions.

Income Producing Alternatives: Understanding Business Development Companies (BDCs)

Are your clients tired of searching for yield in today’s low interest rate environment?  The answer may lie in Business Development Companies, or BDCs – an income producing alternative asset class that has generally flown under investors’ radars – until now.

 

BDCs were created by Congress in 1980 to help stimulate lending in the U.S. and enable public investors to invest in private, growing businesses.  Today, the industry is a powerful force in middle market lending with a market capitalization of over $30 billion and growing.

 

Governed by the Investment Act of 1940, BDCs are pass-through entities, similar to REITs, that can bypass corporate income taxes as long as they distribute at least 90% of taxable annual net income as dividends to shareholders.  BDCs are known for their attractive dividend yields that can reach double-digits -- a rare commodity these days well-suited for retirees and other income-seeking investors.  However, not all BDCs are the same or offer the same quality of investments.  In fact, BDCs can adopt very different approaches, depending on each management’s philosophy.  

 

Register now for our live webinar to learn more about this emerging asset class and what to look for when evaluating these alternatives. Selectivity counts – and certain BDCs can allow clients to receive:

 

  • Attractive, recurring dividends
  • Access to risk-averse portfolios of private, middle market credits
  • Liquidity
  • Diversification across many industries
  • Floating rate exposure (helping to position for rising interest rates)

 

With over $4 billion in AUM, Fifth Street Management LLC is a leading alternative asset manager focused on credit solutions and the investment adviser to two publicly-traded BDCs – Fifth Street Finance Corp. (FSC), one of the largest in the country by market capitalization, and Fifth Street Senior Floating Rate Corp. (FSFR).  For more information, please visit fifthstreetfinance.com/fa.

To remain successful, financial advisors must possess the cutting-edge knowledge and tools that will help their clients—and their business—adapt to the challenges of the new economy. During this live webinar, you’ll learn:

 

  • How you can generate free warm leads that increase your revenue and assets under management, by asking one simple question of your existing clients
  • An easy but innovative new strategy you can use to build upon your core business, while helping your clients and their extended families mitigate risk and have more secure financial plans

 

The Baby Boom generation—with 78 million members—has begun entering retirement, and is driving demand once again. In the U.S., 10,000 people per day turn age 65, and life expectancy is increasing. The Boomers have caused most of the major market trends of the past 60 years, and their final market impact could be devastating. This represents an unprecedented, and often overlooked, opportunity for your business to address a vital need. But how can you tap into this opportunity to the advantage of both you and your clients? The answer is surprisingly simple.

Segments of the closed-end fund (CEF) universe may offer today’s investor a unique set of income opportunities.  Accessing these potential opportunities through the ETF structure may add additional portfolio benefits including efficiency, diversification and transparency.

 

Join us for an in depth discussion about a rules based approach to income investing that seeks to deliver the potential opportunities found in CEFs via the efficiency of an ETF.

 

Topics to be discussed include:

  • An Overview of the CEF & ETF Marketplace Today
  • CEF Premium and Discount Trends
  • Investment Strategy Driven CEF Investing
  • Indexing CEFs Based On Investement Strategy
  • Portfolio Characteristics of YYY: An ETF of CEFs

 

 

For Financial Professional Use Only

 

Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risk factors, charges and expenses before investing. This and additional information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus, which may be obtained by visiting www.yieldshares.com. Read the prospectus carefully before investing.

 

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Because the Fund is a fund of funds, its investment performance largely depends on the investment performance of the Underlying Funds in which it invests. An investment in the Fund is subject to the risks associated with the Underlying Funds that comprise the Index, including risks related to investments in derivatives, REITs, foreign securities and municipal securities. Fixed-income securities’ prices generally fall as interest rates rise. High yield securities are subject to the increased risk of an issuer’s inability to meet principal and interest payment obligations. These securities may be subject to greater price volatility due to such factors as specific corporate developments, interest rate sensitivity, negative perceptions of the non-investment grade securities markets, real or perceived adverse economic conditions, and lower liquidity. Preferred stock is subject to many of the risks associated with debt securities, including interest rate risk. In addition, preferred stock may not pay a dividend, an issuer may suspend payment of dividends on preferred stock at any time, and in certain situations an issuer may call or redeem its preferred stock or convert it to common stock. International investments may also involve risk from unfavorable     fluctuations in currency values, differences in generally accepted accounting principles, and from economic or political instability.

 

There is no guarantee that the fund will meet its investment objective. There is no guarantee the fund will pay distributions.

 

The Fund will pay indirectly a proportional share of the fees and expenses of the Underlying Funds in which it invests, including their investment advisory and administration fees, in addition to its own fees and expenses. In addition, at times certain segments of the market represented by constituent Underlying Funds may be out of favor and underperform other segments. The underlying holdings of the fund may be leveraged, which will expose the holdings to higher volatility and may accelerate the impact of any losses.

 

Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC serves as the investment advisor, and Index Management Solutions, LLC serves as a sub advisor to the fund. The Funds are distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co., which is not affiliated with Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC or any of its affiliates.

  • Communicate in a way that is truly about your clients and prospects
  • Get more clients
  • Keep the clients you want to keep

Wouldn't it be great if your clients told you exactly how much they trust you? What would you do with that information? How would it help you help your clients? Would they be more likely to follow your advice? How would that impact their success and yours?

 

If your clients have an imaginary trust dial embedded in their subconscious, and they do, where does the needle on that trust dial have to be so your clients trust you completely? And if you are dealing with spouses or partners, keep in mind that there are two separate trust dials at work.

 

In this content packed, what-to-do and how-to-do-it webinar, you will learn:

  • The 6 Metrics of Trust, so you can more predictably create the high-trust client relationships that drive better client implementation of your advice.
  • How to measure each trust metric, so you discover exactly how much your clients trust you based on their behavior, not just a hunch or a guess on your part.
  • How to use this information to become a better advisor for your clients and grow your business to the next level as measured by:
    • more revenue from planning and advice fees
    • more revenue from assets under management
    • more revenue from other advice implemented; insurance, annuities, estate planning, etc.
    • and referrals

 

Make it your goal to become the kind of advisor and communicator who can move the needle on the trust dial to create a clientele who are fully comprehensive, consolidate all of their business with you, act on your advice, are more influenced by you than negative external events and media spin, happily pay your fee, and consistently introduce you to friends, family, and colleagues.

 

Bill Bachrach, CSP, CPAE is considered the financial services industry’s leading authority on building high-trust client relationships. He is a popular keynote speaker and successful financial professionals from around the world subscribe to the Values-Based Financial Planning™ turn-key business model to establish themselves as top 1% advisors in terms of value for their clients, financial success, and quality of life. www.billbachrach.com

Change the way clients think about and plan for retirement by providing a crucial step to the financial planning process that is often never addressed and can cause new retirees to feel lost and unfulfilled during their first days, weeks, and even years of retirement.

 

Take a step beyond the traditional dollars and cents and help clients and prospects alike plan for everyday life in retirement including how to:

  • Replace their work identity
  • Fill their time with meaningful tasks and projects
  • Stay connected to family and friends still working
  • Remain mentally and physically sharp

Too many people start their first day of retirement with only a financial plan to guide them. Solidify your relationship and value proposition by helping clients get proactive about the next phase of their life.
