The following are the video replays from the 2 day event


Opening Keynote: What is Driving RIA Growth

It’s no secret that the wealth management industry is undergoing a steady migration toward the independent RIA model that is dramatically reshaping the way financial planning gets done. How long will this growth last?


Panel: Fee-Based Everything: Alternative Investments, Option Strategies and Billing on Outside Assets

If you are looking to "go RIA", this panel will explain the many investment and service solutions that are optimized for RIAs: From alternatives to options and even a solution that lets you bill on outside 401Ks.


Panel: Getting started with custody

Today's custodians not only execute transactions and hold and clear client assets, but they also can provide a wide spectrum of product, customer management, technology and service support to RIAs.


Panel: How can PEPs Enhance Your Wealth Management Business

Many RIAs find 401Ks to be an arduous undertaking that combine the worse of all worlds: high fiduciary risk, huge time commitments and relatively low fees. Join this panel to learn how PEPs (Pooled Employer Plans) may be changing that. In addition to discussing what an RIA needs to get into the PEP world, we will also talk about the new revenue streams a PEP may offer RIAs – especially with regards to gaining additional wealth management clients.
