Older Americans, especially those aged 65 and older, are one of the largest holders of wealth in the United States and historically the most affluent they have ever been. This demographic is a natural client base for financial advisers especially given the unique challenges that provide opportunities for advisers to add value. Increasing longevity requires additional financial resources. Greater overall health increases the use of that wealth for travel, recreation and community involvement. Older adults face the prospect of long term health costs and may need to support their adult children and grandchildren. Our speakers will give an overview of some of the important issues that advisors should be aware of including end-of life planning, long term care, and assisting elder adults with day-to-day living tasks.
