Event Details:
College Admissions: From a Financial Perspective - Evelyn Alexander
Certified Educational Planner Evelyn Alexander, owner of Los Angeles-based Magellan College Counseling, will discuss the financial components of the college admission process, and help you reduce clients' anxiety about paying for their kids' college education. She will discuss the difference between merit-based aid and need-based aid, as well as the different forms and information required by colleges to determine parents' ability to pay.

Evelyn will offer resources that financial planners can use to help clients go beyond rumor to find data about actual college cost, and colleges' financial aid track records, which is the best predictor of their future financial aid behavior.

Evelyn's goal will be to help you feel more comfortable and confident talking with clients about funding their child's (children's) education.

Managing Investor Behavior - Dan Kullman
There is an ever-increasing amount of information available about behavioral finance and abundant evidence of the average investor's poor ability to navigate markets. Yet, the advisory community has produced limited guidance for advisors who wish to curb biases and improve investor decision making.
This course distills a wealth of information about investor behavior into practical tools and processes.
The intended outcome is to train advisors to implement investor behavioral considerations when building portfolios, create greater client understanding and deeper client relationships, and improve competitive differentiation.

We would like to thank our April Sponsor - TOEWS
