Journal in the Round: Navigating Planners and Their Clients Towards Resiliency During the Coronacrash

Product not yet rated

When clients act on unaddressed fear during a bear market, it can lead to poor decisions and damaging effects on their future. Join the June 2020 Journal of Financial Planning contributor Dan Moisand, CFP®, and Devin Velnoskey as they expand on Moisand’s article where he explains ways in which practicing financial planning can hinder its value, and how to address these challenges while helping build planners’ and their clients’ resiliency. They’ll also delve into the findings from FPA’s annual Trends in Investing Survey, discussing portfolio analysis in a time of crisis. This online, interactive roundtable conversation will be moderated by volunteer FPA moderator Ray Benton, CFP®.

  • Analyze a client’s degree of risk and loss aversion and insure recommendations are consistent with a client’s risk propensity, attitudes, capacity, knowledge, and needs
  • Develop how a planner can develop a relationship of honesty and trust in client interaction
  • Recommend an asset allocation strategy consistent with a client’s risk tolerance
