Today, the demands of running a successful financial services practice have never been greater. New investment vehicles such as IRAs and mutual funds have tax and estate planning implications unheard of a generation ago. Financial professionals must not only serve their existing clients and prospect for new ones, but they must keep up to date on the latest changes in the law affecting tax and estate planning, along with fulfilling state requirements for continuing education and professional ethics.
That’s why our law firm and the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys have developed Continuing Education programs designed to increase financial advisors’ knowledge of basic estate planning concepts and advanced planning strategies. Not only will you learn how to use your existing estate planning services more effectively, but you’ll gain Continuing Education credits you need to keep your license current.
