PFP2101. KEYNOTE: Economic Update - Investing in a Post-Pandemic World, followed by the presentation of the PFP Standing Ovation Awards

As we enter the third quarter, the economic landscape is dominated by two surges – a fiscal surge and a vaccination surge. In combination, these surges should lead to much stronger economic growth and higher inflation. A key question for investors, however, is whether this will fuel a continued back up in long-term interest rates or a market correction in areas of the markets that look frothy. As the pandemic winds down, investors will likely once again focus on longer-term issues such as sustainable investing and the relentless growth of the Chinese economy and capital markets.

PFP2105. Exponential: A New Way of Thinking About Growth

A truth has emerged: growth begins with behavior. The idea that growth begins with behavior should be no stranger to leaders of professional service, including advisory firm owners. While a focus on behavior has always been present, today there is a major trend within wealth management to help investors focus on their behavior and to shed light on how their actions and attitudes affect their retirement and financial goals. And yet, focusing on behavior is often the last place firm owners think to look when analyzing their own revenue and profit growth. In this session, you will learn the behaviors that are holding back growth, how to look at them differently, and how to overcome them to grow exponentially.

PFP2109. The Unlimited Roth IRA - Tax free saving inside a Life insurance policy: Good or too good to be true?

Life insurance enjoys similar income tax characteristics as Roth IRAs. Premiums are paid into the policy after tax, earnings in the cash value, and withdrawals therefrom or loans thereagainst, are not includible in the policy owner’s gross income (if the policy is designed and managed properly), and death benefit proceeds are generally not includible the beneficiary’s gross income. For many high-income-earner taxpayers cannot qualify for Roth IRAs, or may be limited with how much can be contributed to a Roth 401(k), cash value life insurance can be a powerful Roth-alternative wealth accumulation strategy. For those with large traditional IRAs not needed for retirement income, cash value life insurance can also be a powerful wealth transfer strategy when distributions from the IRA are used to fund premiums. This session will examine how cash value life insurance can act as an “unlimited Roth IRA” for high earners to grow wealth, including a detailed analysis of the effect of policy charges on cash value accumulation compared to investing in a portfolio of traditional taxable investments, as well as an effective wealth transfer strategy to help control the damage caused by the SECURE Act on traditional IRAs.
