Most high net worth clients say their advisors aren't good at philanthropic planning. They also have vastly different expectations than their advisors about how philanthropic planning should happen. High net worth clients also say that knowing that an advisor has personal philanthropic experience and knowledge would factor into which advisor they choose and it would enhance the credibility of advice provided.

Advisors who have embraced philanthropic planning have experienced great success and growth in their practices, including deeper client relationships, more high-quality referrals, and a link to the next generation. 

Philanthropic planning is just like any other skill - it can be developed. Join us for this presentation where you will earn one (1) hour of CE for your AEP® designation while learning that with the right practice and instruction, philanthropic planning can be successfully incorporated into any practice and bring great success!
