Your clients currently in or nearing retirement are likely feeling the sting of market volatility, rising inflation, and supply chain shortages on their portfolios. And while you do what you can to help safeguard their assets, there comes a point when your aging clients need to look beyond traditional financing tools to improve their probabilities of success. 

For your 55+ clients, that is most likely their second “portfolio” hidden in plain sight: their home equity.

Join us for a virtual Home Equity & Retirement Solutions Symposium with four of today’s foremost financial retirement experts to learn how, when used strategically, reverse mortgages can provide liquidity, mitigate sequence risk, and expand financial solvency while creating a larger legacy.

During the symposium, our renowned guest experts will discuss:
  • Managing Sequence of Return Risk with a Reverse Mortgage — Exploring how spending from investments and home equity can be more efficiently coordinated through the use of a reverse mortgage to better meet spending goals and preserve more assets to cover contingencies and legacy.
    • Presented by Wade Pfau, Ph.D., CFA, RICP, Professor of Retirement Income, The American College
  • Reverse Mortgages – A Versatile Tool for Mitigating Retirement Risks — Demonstrating how planners can utilize reverse mortgages to mitigate retirement risks for clients such as asset depletion, market volatility, inflation, and taxes. Despite these potential retirement planning opportunities, home equity often ends up being the “forgotten asset.”
    • Presented by Joseph Jordan, Founder of the Insured Retirement Institute & Behavioral Finance Expert
  • Financial Considerations for Caregivers and their Loved Ones — Learning how to plan for and cope with financial issues that may arise, reviewing Medicare & Medicaid coverage, gaining an understanding of Senior Care Services, and reviewing required financial and legal documents to provide care to loved ones.
    • Presented by, Marguerita Cheng, CFP®, CEO, Blue Ocean Global Wealth
  • Bridging the Gap – How to Have “The Talk” with Clients About Reverse Mortgages — Tackling how to bridge the educational gap many advisors face when broaching the topic of home equity with their 55+ clients. And discussing how to help your clients understand the real value of their home equity from a holistic planning approach.
    • Presented by Christian Mills, Financial Planner Channel Leader, Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC
