Brooks Macdonald announces sixth year of Adviser Academies
14 February 2018
Brooks Macdonald is running 11 Adviser Academies around the country from April to May 2018, to which paraplanners are invited.
The firm says it has based the content for this year’s series of events on the feedback from over 500 attendees in 2017, and has brought together a range of influential speakers to focus on the topics which are most important to the adviser community: time, efficiency and regulation.
There are five keynote speakers at the Adviser Academies:
Edward Park, director – Investment Committee, Brooks Macdonald, who will speak on capturing equity gains whilst protecting portfolios. He will explore themes that can benefit from economic growth as well as areas that can provide returns to portfolios if markets correct.
Nigel Barker-Smith and Justin King, owners of small but profitable financial planning firms, will explain why they believe Life Planning is the most important element of the financial advice process. Tips will be given on how to help clients understand what is important to them and also to inspire them to take action.
JP Morgan, will provide market Insights, with data and commentary on global markets to inform conversations with clients.
The team from moneyinfo will tackle GDPR, explaining how the implementation of a digital strategy can demonstrate commitment to protecting personal data, and help comply with GDPR while removing significant cost from a business. It will be a practical demonstration of how ‘going digital’ can improve the efficiency of adviser businesses whilst protecting their existing IT investment.
AND, Cassie Footman, coach and international speaker, will talk about the four fundamentals that are critical to business success.
