  • Realize their clients are looking for more “value-added" services & advice
  • Understand the aging process & costs of senior care 
  • Recognize when their clients begin to have diminished capacity 
  • Create relationships with the client’s family
  • Facilitate difficult conversations regarding end of life desires & options
  • Grasp the financial, physical and emotional toll of being a primary caregiver
  • Create trusted network of affiliated professionals

 Think Strategically to Capture More Business!

Did you know that:

  • More than 10,000 Baby Boomers retire each day?
  • More than $40 Trillion will be accumulated by Aging Boomers and then transferred down to the next generation by 2050?
  • More than 90% of children will not hire their parent’s Financial Advisor to manage their investments?

    Advisors who are looking to stand out from the crowd need to understand these changing demographics and dynamics. Plan4Life’s seasoned experts provide the specialized training needed to help advisors:
  • Modify their investment approach when dealing with an aging clientele
  • Protect AUM by creating and maintain relationships with the client’s children
  • Leverage knowledge of the aging process to create differentiation

    Those advisors who take a strategic approach to understanding and preparing for these trends will be best positioned to capture more business as their clients age and pass their wealth down. Stand out from the crowd and capture more business by earning the  Certified Elder Planning Specialist (CEPS) professional designation.
