TOP Conferences for Financial Advisors
Here are some of the most highly regarded events for financial advisors. I would encourage FA's, wholesalers, and entrepreneurs of financial service products to attend these events so they can build and grow their network.
The Fi360 Conference is the industry’s premier professional development conference. Founded in 2004, the Fi360 Conference was originally designed to deliver designees with the practical, fiduciary based content they desired to advance their practice. In just a few short years, the agenda grew to boast over 35 unique educational sessions taught by some of the most sought-after industry leaders. As a result, financial service professionals from all over the world asked to participate in the event.
Today, the Fi360 Conference hosts over 600 investment professionals who are looking to grow their fiduciary knowledge base by participating in insightful learning sessions, innovative workshops, and thought-provoking discussions. In 2017, the conference will provide industry professionals a platform where they can learn about the practical implications of the DOL’s 2016 Fiduciary Rule and what they need to know in order to prepare for the January 1, 2018 BICE compliance deadline.LEARN MORE HERE
