8:15-9:05- Advanced “Late Stage” College Planning- Presented by Deborah Fox


Most advisors are aware of college saving strategies to recommend to their clients. However, many advisors have not had much exposure to the planning stage when parents have a child in high school and the focus shifts from how to accumulate funds to how to mitigate the upcoming college bills. This presentation will cover various academic, admissions, financial aid, cash flow and tax reduction strategies you can recommend to clients to reduce their out-of-pocket cost by potentially tens of thousands of dollars. Below are some of the topics that will be discussed: 

Current college statistics to share with your clients. 

The key college metrics you need to know for advising your clients. 

New changes made to the financial aid applications you and your clients need to know. 

Update on the student loan crisis and how to use it to educate parents & students. 

Current information for providing sage guidance on student loans. 

COVID Impact and recent COVID relief for student loan borrowers. 

A list of some of the more competitive private college loan providers and when they should be utilized. 

Ideas for how to use college planning to attract new clients. 

How to choose which prospects to work with. 

Using the “layering” effect for college planning to get the best outcome for clients.

1:00- 1:55- Determining Your Retirement Income Style- Presented by Dr. Wade Phau
As the baby boomers reach retirement, advisors must solve new problems for clients who aim to sustain their lifestyle over an unknown horizon. Multiple retirement income strategies have emerged and it is hard for retirees to identify which strategies match their personal style. This presentation is based on research that identifies and validates a set of scorable retirement income factors to define preferences for an overall retirement income style. It describes a workable retirement model by showing how the factors connect to four main retirement income strategies: systemic withdrawls with total return investing, risk wrap with deffered annuities, protected income with immediate annuities, and time segmentation. Approaching retirement income agnostically and matching retirement income strategies based on an individual's personal retirement income style may lead to improved outcomes for retirees.
