8:30 - 9:30 am Presentation
Guest Speaker: Alan Gorlick, MBA, AAMS
As financial professionals, we advise clients about legal, estate, accounting, tax, insurance, retirement and cash flow needs. One of the factors we may have to deal with is an investment portfolio established by a computer model, a financial advisor or the clients' own handiwork.
How do we ensure that the portfolio's risk is consistent with the client's needs and the rest of our advice? This presentation will arm you with the tools to challenge the assumptions underlying the portfolio's risk profile, evaluate the risk and modify where necessary.
