In the face of unprecedented market volatility, the role of the advisor may be more critical than ever before. Amid client concern and anxiety, Edmond Walters, Founder and CEO of Apprise Labs, asserts that there are four proven strategies you can use to help high-net-worth clients stay on course for a successful financial future:
- Annual exclusion gifting
- Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts (GRATs)
- Borrowing from a Life Insurance Policy
- Refinancing debt
Edmond expands on these strategies in a recent article in InvestmentNews, “Four ways advisers can help clients find opportunities amid market volatility.” As we continue to experience market turbulence, finding ways to support your clients and provide solid financial advice can be a true differentiator and drive client retention and satisfaction.
