04-24-2014 Goals Based Wealth Management in Practice - a New Paradigm

Thursday, April 24th, 2014 - *Lunch begins at 12:30pm, presentation from 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Jean L.P. Brunel, CFA
Managing Principal, Brunel Associates LLC, Wealth Education and Analysis

Chair: Thomas Mahoney, CFA, CAIA

An Alternative Investments Group Sponsored Event

Mr. Brunel will discuss of some of the key issues that families typically face when dealing with wealth planning, will introduce a framework that allows advisors to consider financial, estate, and investment planning needs, and will show the practical considerations associated with the process.  Wealth management processes have not always been responsive to individual clients' priorities and modes of thinking. A model is presented that uses goals-based wealth management concepts to generate module-built portfolios, each of which is driven by a client's expressed goals.  This model allows for a high degree of flexibility and responsiveness to client needs with a practical level of standardization.  Families will most likely view the process as successful once they have discovered and identified their goals, quantified the capital required to meet each goal, and created complimentary sub-portfolios that meet each goal in a comfortable manner.
