Update 2023

Advocis Update 2023 Banner. The Banner states "Resiliency through Uncertainty"


Change is the only constant.  Enter financial advisors and financial planners, who have a huge opportunity right now to lead by example in helping clients build their resiliency. The value of financial plans has never been clearer. However, the financial plan must become a living document. A crucial part of the plan is understanding clients beyond the numbers, what is important to them, personally, socially, what motivates them?  Building this level of trust strengthens client relationships and helps them see the value of becoming actively engaged in the implementation of their financial plan. With you at their side, guiding them forward, they gain confidence to look at their plan through today’s lens; confirming goals and making adjustments if necessary. Helping clients learn how to treat their financial plan as a living, evolving roadmap ensures that it continues to deliver today and into their future.
