We know that more than 50% of Americans think that estate planning is at least somewhat important. We also know that only about 1/3rd of Americans actually have a will or living trust.1

What does this have to do with advisors?
93% of clients expect their advisor to provide them with estate planning advice.2

Your clients likely know estate planning is important, they may not have done anything about it, and they want to turn to you for advice. In this video, I talk more about the huge opportunity this presents to advisors.

On October 20th, join Envestnet | MoneyGuide and Trucendent to gain insight on important trust and estate planning strategies to review with your clients. We will discuss trust types to consider and use software to illustrate how they may impact a client’s plan. Additionally, learn how you can protect your client’s beneficiaries and legacy by surrounding yourself with the proper team of professionals.

Register for the webinar today.
