    Opening General Session: How to Leverage EQ to More Effectively Engage Your Clients

    Business leaders and outstanding performers are not defined by their IQs or even their job skills, but by their “emotional intelligence,” a set of competencies that distinguishes how people manage themselves and their relationships. Goleman explains what emotional intelligence is and why it counts differently—and often more powerfully—than IQ or technical expertise.

    Daniel Goleman, PhD, will be signing books in the conference bookstore inside the exhibit hall on Sunday from 67 p.m.

            General Session 2: Navigating Economic Uncertainty by Bubble-Spotting

            The overwhelming flood of political, economic, technological, social, and market forces that bombard us every day is distracting. It prevents us from paying attention to what really matters. Our usual response to the noise is to focus narrowly or turn to specialists for help. But is that the right path? Mansharamani offers scores of compelling real-life examples that show how a narrow lens can lead us to miss the most important signals—the ones we’re least primed to see. He advocates opening up to get a broader view; to zoom out to a generalist’s approach. Breadth is as important as depth and generalists win by paying attention to more than their area of expertise.

                  General Session 3: Innovating Our Way Out: How Public and Private Innovation are Changing the Landscape of the World Economy

                  Innovation is occurring at the fastest pace in history, but is it fast or substantial enough to allow the world economy to grow given that debt is now three times the level of global gross domestic product (GDP)? Many have doubts and predict dire outcomes, falling stock markets, and rising unemployment. But, so far, innovation is generating new GDP, new jobs, new cash flows, and new policy stances that together are pushing markets to record highs and unemployment to record lows. Economist Malmgren will explain why she bets on innovation being the winner every time.

                        Asia’s growing dominance within the emerging market asset class is a reflection of the region’s resilience, long-term fundamental driven growth, and commitment to structural reforms.

                        Workshop 3: Adapt, Change or Disappear

                        For hundreds of years, the views and perspectives on estate planning and inheritance went virtually unchanged. Wealth transfer was primarily done in the form of passing on skills or land as a transfer of opportunity. Parents saw inheritance as an obligation and they typically sacrificed their own lifestyle and standard of living to transfer additional assets to successive generations. Beginning with the Baby Boomer generation, these views have begun to fundamentally shift. Examine changing views on wealth in the marketplace and how these changes are affecting planning in this session, which offers practical recommendations on how to adapt to the changing landscape and meet the goals of a new and different client.

                        Workshop 6: Managing and Minimizing Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) Obligations

                        Congress created tax-preferenced retirement accounts specifically to help encourage people to save for, and in part to subsidize the cost of, retirement. The good news is that trillions of dollars have been saved, but  the “bad” news is that for those who don’t actually need to use all the money, Congress eventually forces it out, through the so-called Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) rules. In this session, we explore in detail exactly how RMDs work, when they may be delayed, how to determine the Applicable Distribution Period, the special issues that crop up when annuities are held in retirement accounts, when to accelerate distributions, and how to coordinate RMDS with charitable giving.

                              General Session 4: Five Structural Reforms to Get the Economy Back on Track & Lunch Sponsored by Capital Group, home of American Funds

                              The greatest challenge for the United States is sub-par long-term growth. Poor growth need not be the new normal. Instead, the problems facing the United States are largely self-inflicted in the form of poor policy choices. Five reforms—regulatory reform, tax reform, entitlement reform, education reform, and immigration reform—can restore access to the American Dream. This session will outline the need for these reforms, assess where we stand on the regulatory and tax front in light of efforts by the Trump administration and Congress, and outline the best path forward on the remainder of the agenda.

                                Workshop 24: The Changing Landscape of Wholesaling

                                Over the past 10 years, the art of wholesaling has seen a dramatic change. The U.S. Department of Labor, registered investment advisor gatekeepers, and outsourced chief investment officers (to name a few) have all changed the rules of engagement. And, more change is coming. Are you preparing for the future? Join us to discuss current and future trends of the craft of helping financial advisors.

                                Workshop 27: Venture Capital: De-risking, De-mystifying and Democratization

                                Venture capital historically has been a top-performing asset class, benefiting from growth in technology and innovation, and from the illiquidity premium. In this session, advisors will learn how venture capital as an asset class can be de-risked if investors conduct due diligence, have considerable domain expertise, and implement post-deal stewardship. While access to venture capital funds is generally limited to select institutions, learn how democratization in the form of lower minimums and increased liquidity can enable more accredited investors to utilize this attractive asset class.

                                Workshop 28: Navigating Volatile Markets with Dynamic Rebalancing

                                Market volatility causes even the most established institutional investors to question whether they should stay the course or make allocation changes. Relying on common, static decision-making processes can work against investors, particularly during periods of increased risk. In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a dynamic rebalancing methodology to potentially improve investment outcomes while supporting good governance.

                                  General Session 5: The New Neuroscience of Doubling Production: The Latest Insights, Tools, Tech and Tactics

                                  Today’s firms and reps are failing to effectively connect with current clients because their methods have not kept pace with broad and dramatic shifts in attitudes, expectations, and values. Small changes can grow an advisor’s practice through a shift in language, tactics, tools, and mindset—leading to a renewed ability to connect persuasively with clients. Cooper combines his groundbreaking neuroscience research with hands-on experience to deliver new, ultra-practical tools that record-setting, trusted advisors have used to double production in their investment and wealth advisory practices.

                                  Robert Cooper, PhD, will be signing books in the conference bookstore inside the exhibit hall on Tuesday from 5:406:40 p.m.

                                        Irrationalities influence everyday behavior, including the choices we make when it comes to pricing and the effects that expectations have on our decisions. Using basic behavioral economic principles, Ariely will share with investment and wealth advisors how they can help their clients make better investment decisions by discussing how we view risk and are influenced by contextual factors and emotions.

                                          General Session 7: Investing in Honesty: Opportunities and Challenges in Ethical Decisions

                                          Trust is a key pillar of the investment and wealth management industry and of the economic system overall. Wagner argues that by incorporating insights from finance, psychology, and ethics research on drivers and consequences of honesty and deception, investment and wealth management professionals can more effectively fulfill their function as advisors and intermediaries—and be more successful.
