The Impact of Living Benefits on the Financial Security of Your Clients. Presented by: Monica Fortney & Perry Wong CPA, CA - Sponsored by Combined Insurance

What will the advisor learn from this presentation?

In this presentation, the advisor will learn how adding living benefits and supplemental insurance to their client's portfolio can positively impact their financial security of their clients and prospects.

Currently the Insurance Industry landscape is extremely limited. There is a vast variety of Life Insurance products from many insurance providers. However, there is very few choices available to financial advisors in the Living Benefit landscape. Most advisors are not actively offering disability due to income qualification issues, long waiting periods and occupational rating and restrictions.

* Accident and Sickness Insurance
* No Income Proof : No job required for coverage
* No waiting periods
* No occupational restrictions
* Issue age: 6 months to age 69
* Coverage to age 85
* Family coverage available : Protecting existing and future children
* Lump Sum Critical Illness Insurance
* Level cost of insurance 
* Lifetime coverage  (issue age 18 yrs to age 70)
* Partial payment for certain non-life-threatening cancers, with benefit eligibility available for a second condition.
* Cancer Care Insurance
* Preferred rating for individuals even if there is pre-existing condition of Cancer, Stroke, Heart Attack or Diabetes 
* Family coverage available: Protecting existing and future children.

How To Build, Operate And Transition To A Successful Advisory Practice In Today's Ever-Changing Environment. Presented by Chris Boyle - Sponsored by Legacy Financial Group Ltd.

What will the advisor learn from this presentation?

As Advisors we all have challenges when dealing with our clients and prospects. More and more is expected of us than ever before. How do we keep up with these challenges?

In this presentation, the advisor will learn how to create a better work life balance, build and grow a sustainable practice and find options on how to maximize the benefit when they decide to transition or sell their practice.

Presentation Overview

Clients often develop strong bonds with their financial advisors because of the personal nature of the information they share. However, there may come a time when a longstanding advisor is considering a handoff of their clients to a colleague, as they prepare to enter the next phase of their life... retirement or stepping back from the business they built as they consider succession planning for their block of business.

This can cause anxiety for clients, who may be wondering how to rebuild that same rapport and trust with a different advisor or company.

Customer relationships trump marginal profits and savings differentials more often than not. If a financial services advisor or company wants to maintain a more predictable revenue stream that will bring the best return for their years spent building their businesses, it must have a solid succession planning system in place.

In this session, Chris will address the following issues:

* Challenges the Industry is Facing
* Challenges Advisors Face
* What makes your business valuable for sale or transition?
* How you can build a more profitable practice and how partnering with Legacy Financial Group LTD can help you.

Legacy Financial Group LTD is a company that is changing the experience both clients and advisors have in our industry. This includes increased transparency, compliance shift and work/life balance to name a few.

Chris is a father of 3 girls and is a sports fan and love to cook.

What will the advisor learn from this presentation?

Buying and owning real estate is an investment strategy that can be both satisfying and lucrative, but it is not for all your clients and prospects.

The advisor will leave this presentation with a better understanding of how real estate investments can add diversification to your clients and prospect portfolios just like the other investments that you have in place for them.

They will learn that a real estate asset is subject to different influences than stocks and bonds, segregated funds, RRSPs etc.

The advisor will see the benefit of establishing a goal with the client to perhaps add a passive income stream while they assist with managing their other insurance and investments as well as an estate plan for any tax implications through the use of insurance products.

Presentation Overview

A financial advisor will learn about the clients' financial goals and devise a plan to help them attain them.

When looking for investment options for your clients and prospects, there are many choices for where to put their money. Stocks, bonds, exchange-traded funds, mutual funds, and investing in real estate are all good investments that should be considered.

But for many Canadians, the majority of their wealth is held in personally owned real estate. Due to the nature of real estate, it is important to utilize financial & estate planning to realize optimum gain and minimize tax implications.

In this presentation. Christian will discuss the following:

* Avoid the Top 3 mistakes insurance advisors do that limit their sales
* Uncover additional insurance needs with your client's real estate investments.
* Add value by teaching clients how to break their wealth ceiling

Introducing Christian Dy B.Sc., B. Ed, MA, MBA

Christian is an award-winning educator, team leader, and financial advisor.

When Christian took over his father's business, he not only gained 40 years of experience but also brought his desire for helping his clients invest in real estate.

He realized that traditional financial advisors were only focusing on wealth in the stock market, which went against his philosophy of growing wealth.

His practice is now focused on working with clients who want to build their financial wealth in the real estate market. This is achieved with an integration of stock assets, combined with active and passive real estate investments.

His team can not only do traditional financial planning for clients but will also analyze and present new cash flowing real estate deals across Canada/US.

Christian has created a unique service for clients, incorporating real estate consulting to their traditional investments. His new book (Breaking Your Wealth Ceiling) soon to be released teaches clients how to break their wealth ceiling by investing in cash flowing assets, such real estate. His practice entails a fee for service, which has doubled his insurance sales over the past 2 years, while creating exponential wealth for his clients.

When Christian is not advising clients or giving financial workshops, he can be found analyzing real estate investments, creating financial education videos for his YouTube channel, and volunteering locally and abroad with his philanthropic projects.
