The 2016 PLANADVISER National Conference 

Ascende Wealth Advisers, Inc. (AWAI) consultant Rich Eagar is speaking at the 2016 PLANADVISER National Conference in Orlando, Florida September 12 – 14. As a moderator, he’s joined by panelists from Envisage Information Systems, T. Rowe Price and Ann Schlek & Co. for a discussion on Employee Education and Financial Wellness.

It’s safe to say that holistic financial wellness is one of the employee benefit industry’s next great frontiers, with heightened focus and greater interest among all types of employers. Conference attendees will learn the latest and greatest ways plans are delivering advice about all aspects of budgeting, income planning and spending. Just as important, the panelists plan to speak about how to get paid for advice given outside the retirement context.
