Strategies For Tax Planning And Clients Retiring In 2023, Plus The Latest News In Recruitment And Wealthtech
To My Fellow WSR Community Members:
The 2011 hit film “Moneyball” followed the journey of Major League Baseball’s Oakland Athletics in 2002 to forge a winning team on a limited budget, selecting players based on a statistical analysis system called “sabermetrics,” which confounded conventional wisdom. The strategy helped the A’s finish first in the American League West – and change the game.
The year just behind us was a year of strategy for wealth management, as the necessity of market uncertainty unleashed a wave of invention and adoption of strategies to squeeze higher performance from limited resources. The new year is starting the same way, and advisors who pick the right strategies for their clients will gain the competitive edge this year.
This week, we bring you thoughtful strategies from the experts to maximize opportunity and stability for clients entering retirement and to serve high net worth clients with sophisticated tax planning. We also have the first recruitment news and wealthtech news roundups for 2023.
This Week’s Issue
Here’s what we have for you this week:
