Incorporating Institutional Best Practices in a Wealth Management Practice
An important, rare and unique opportunity to hear from three experts: an institutional investor, a family office consultant, and a major global custodian, how institutional best practices can and should be implemented for individual portfolios. Some of the topics to be covered will be allocating capital, fees, rebalancing, performance benchmarking, selecting funds and manages, indexing, and closing tax leakage. If there is one meeting practitioners should attend this year, this is it. Fourth in a monthly series of wealth management excellence events, and open to all CFA members as well as the larger RIA and senior financial advisory community, but limited to the first hundred registrants.
