The Sustainable Adviser: The Value of Educating Financial Planners on Socially Responsible and Impact Investing

Time: January 9, 2018 4:00 p.m. EDT

Presented by Jennifer Coombs, CRPC®

The rising popularity of socially screened investment products is nothing short of astounding. In fact, in 2016, socially responsible investments accounted for one out of every five dollars under professional management in the United States. Yet despite this growing popularity, many institutional financial advisers are finding themselves ill-equipped to handle the very specific demands of this niche market. In this webinar we will cover a brief history of SRI investing, how to effectively communicate SRI strategies with clients, and the process of security selection and monitoring using SRI screening techniques.

Performance to Plan: Changing the Client Conversation

Time: July 10, 2018 4:00 p.m. EDT

Presented by Craig Kinnunen, CFP®

At some point in their career, all investment advisers find themselves defending the performance of a given client’s portfolio against an arbitrary benchmark. In this session we will discuss the pitfalls associated with making such comparisons and also explore ways that investment advisers may change the conversation from one of “Why did our (very well diversified) portfolio underperform the S&P 500?” to “How are we doing in meeting our various financial goals?”


Along the way we will introduce the concept of the wealth allocation framework and discuss how other advisers have integrated this concept into client reports and meetings.

How to Efficiently Manage Employee Stock Options from a Tax Perspective

Time: September 11, 2018 4:00 p.m. EDT

Presented by Michael Angell, CFP® EA

Employee stock options are common among highly compensated employees, potentially offering them more upside and favorable tax treatment. However, with no fewer than five different ways to tax these options, many employees are completely unaware of their choices and may cash out their options as soon as they vest, thus eliminating or reducing their tax benefit. In this webinar, we will examine the various methods and techniques available under the Internal Revenue Code to minimize the tax impact of employee stock options and thereby increase after-tax return.

Enhancing Client Conversations with Behavioral Financial Planning

Time: November 13, 2018 4:00 p.m. EDT

Presented by Cindy Shnaider, MSF

Behavioral finance is an important aspect that’s sometimes overlooked in the client-planner relationship. There are specific client preferences that generally apply to different demographic groups (gender, age, wealth, etc.), and while these preferences can make it easier to start client conversations, what happens when your clients don’t fit neatly into one group or another? This webinar identifies ways to help you tailor client conversations through a knowledge of client demographics, as well as deal with the complexity of advising individuals and couples whose preferences may differ.
