Topic:  The Future of Financial Planning

Jim Whiddon, CFP®, founder JWA Financial Group, Radio Show Host, Author (Jim Whiddon Bio)


Holistic financial planning is a relatively young field compared to several of the component disciplines such as tax planning, investment planning, and insurance planning, to name a few.  However, the amalgamation of this evolving profession has produced one of the fastest growing career fields in the United States today.  This presentation will address the latest academic research and technology being integrated into the production of the next generation of financial planners along with the tools and techniques needed to build deeper relationships with current clients in order to enrich their lives – and also to meet the threats of commoditization faced by today’s advisor.  Demand for collaborative planning will continue to drive deeper client relationships, and the ability to apply a customized solution for individual circumstances will be the anchor that joins clients to a lifelong financial plan they feel connected to.
