Life Settlement Solutions for Liquidity Needs Created by COVID-19
Jamie L. Mendelsohn & Jon B. Mendelsohn
session brought to you by Ashar Group
Covid-19 has created a need for liquidity for many of your clients. If you have stalled relationships and are looking for new ways to engage them, change the conversation. This session will use multiple case studies to show attendees how the policy appraisal discussions open doors to not only life settlements, but to other related revenue opportunities within your practice area. The same processes can be used to develop new relationships and centers of influence.

||General Session: "Are You in Good Hands?"
Richard M. Weber, MBA, CLU®, AEP® (Distinguished)
This session will offer an exploration of suitability and client best interest in the sale and purchase of life insurance. Attendees will be among the first to learn of the regulatory movement substantially increasing the standard of care owed to buyers of life insurance. While mainly affecting licensed agents and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designees, non-licensed allied professionals will likely be caught unaware of these regulatory changes. Attendees will learn: a description of enhanced regulations currently in effect in various states; information about comparable changes in the fiduciary obligations of CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designees to their clients; practical tools that currently exist to meet these requirements - fulfilling both the letter and spirit of the new requirements; how many new life insurance products defy the consumer’s (and agent’s) ability to determine the amount of risk the client takes to achieve an expected reward; and how allied professionals will likely want to interact with their clients going forward.

Natalie B. Choate, Esq., AEP® (Distinguished)
Qualified charitable distributions are a popular tax saving device for all IRA owners over 70.5 - helping the "little guy" as well as the rich and famous. They're easy, they're simple, and people still mess them up. During her presentation, Natalie Choate will offer 12 things you didn't know about QCDs.

Option #1: Oil & Gas Assets – Fiduciary Risk Mitigation and Regulatory Issues
session brought to you by Farmers National Company Oil & Gas Management
This session will describe how Fiduciaries can manage risk associated with management of oil & gas assets held in trust, through prudent and pro-active management. The presentation will include three key elements of a successful oil & gas management program: a) planning for oil & gas ownership (due diligence, pre-acceptance evaluations, market valuations); b) management of oil & gas assets (revenue accounting, land administration, revenue maximization, leasing); and c) risk issues associated with oil & gas assets (title curative, lease values, dormant mineral filings, working interest review).
Option #2: Positioning Your Business for Growth
session brought to you by White Glove
The current pandemic has forced everyone to alter, or in some circumstances, completely halt their marketing efforts this year. However, now more than ever, clients are seeking professionals to provide much needed education and estate planning assistance. Join this session to discuss real results the sponsoring firm has seen in the industry and what new methods have helped financial professionals partner with estate planners to position their business for growth.
