TOPIC #2: HINDsight 2020

SPEAKER: Leon LaBrecque, JD, CPA, CFP®, CFA

About the Program: As the calendar turns, we’ll enter a new year and a brand new decade. Historically, these ten-year windows have brought significant shifts across our economic and cultural landscape. We’ll look at the potential impact of the 2020 election, proposed legislation (SECURE and tax law changes), and advances in technology and the ways they might change the financial and estate planning landscape. Learn why planning will not only remain important, but become more critical in the decade to come. Our goal will be finding clarity and implementing strategies to help clients move toward their goals.
