 Increasing Access to Financial Planning

Friday, August 13 | 11:45am PT

A CNBC and Acorns study found that only 17% of Americans are utilizing a Financial Advisor. As professionals, we know the lasting value in having a plan and in working with a financial planner. Yet everyday Americans do not understand what financial advice really is nor do they believe they have the income or the assets to gain access. The next generation of financial planners are looking to change this – to increase access and to broaden the diversity of their client base – but many don’t know where to start. Join us to learn how Facet Wealth is driving innovation and change, rethinking the financial advice service model, and scaling high quality, fiduciary advice for a more diverse client base. In this session, we will explore what you can do individually, and what we can do collectively as a community, to increase access and elevate the financial health of a nation.
