    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 Objectives:

     

    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.

    Collapse Is the Quality of Your Retirement Advice Losing Money for Your Clients?

     

    It's no secret that all retirement calculators are not created equal, and it's been well reported that the same inputs receive varying longevity results across retirement tools. Now, research shows that many of these calculators cheat investors out of six or more years of retirement income by using inefficient drawdown strategies.This discovery comes from the research article, "Tax-Efficient Withdrawal Strategies," published in The Financial Analysts Journal and written by William Meyer, CEO, Retiree Inc., and William Reichenstein, PhD, Co-founder, Retiree Inc. Join Retiree Income for this educational webinar to hear the research authors debunk the conventional wisdom around tax-efficient retirement withdrawals, which suggests that in investor should withdraw funds from one account at a time moving to the next one after the previous is exhausted, starting with tax-deferred accounts and moving to tax-exempt accounts. Meyer and Reichenstein will demonstrate that this conventional wisdom, which many retirement income tools are built on, is not the most tax efficient.
