About This Webinar

The transition from “pure” investment management services to providing more holistic financial planning has been underway for more than a decade, as advisory firms either try to expand their value to defend against fee compression, or increasingly offer advice as a standalone service to generate standalone advice fees. Yet the challenge is that historically, financial planning was always paid via subsequent product implementation, or as a part of an AUM fee... such that advisors have never had to ‘prove’ their financial planning value the way they do now with a more fee-for-service approach.

At the Kitces Financial Planning Value Summit, you’ll have a chance to see what successful financial planning value looks like, with a unique behind the scenes look at real financial advisors' efforts to demonstrate their value in their marketing, their financial planning process, and their ongoing advice services. No vendors. No sponsors. Just a series of 30-minute real conversations between our co-hosts – Michael Kitces and Taylor Schulte – and our expert guests, financial advisors who will screenshare their actual financial planning deliverables and show how they communicate their value to prospects and clients.

Managing Director, Experience Integration, Buckingham Strategic Wealth
Fresh out of college and one month into his first career as an engineer, a lightbulb went off for Aaron Grey. While attending a session to sign up for his company’s 401(k) plan, he recalls thinking that he was prepared. After all, he had just earned a difficult degree and even had grown up in and around his father’s investment advisory practice, which was based out of the basement of his house. Even so, Aaron remembers having absolutely no idea how much to contribute to his retirement plan, not to mention what counted as a sensible investment allocation. A few years later, Aaron decided to help others in similar situations by making the complex simple and made the move into wealth management. Today, and true to his early professional experience, Aaron finds it most rewarding to work with people who feel anxious, fearful or uncertain about their financial lives. He now measures his accomplishments by helping people achieve what he calls financial serenity – a sense of peace, calm and confidence about their futures. For Aaron, that serves as a constant reminder that financial planning is about so much more than money.
