The Convergence of Health Care & Financial Planning

Health care is a prevalent topic in our nation, the political landscape and certainly in the financial services industry. Much of the attention is drawn to the Patient Protection & Affordable Act and its impact on health care coverage in the work place. It is equally important, however, to focus our attention on health care during retirement and the massive impact it can have on our financial plans. To provide a comprehensive and effective retirement income plan, one must understand critical components, including Medicare and custodial care. Health care expenditures will be the largest retirement cost most individuals will face. Choosing the most effective means of saving and investing will make a meaningful difference on the quality of your retirement years. Traditional approaches to financial planning should be modified in order to best prepare.

The Digital Revolution

Every day people are empowered with unfiltered information and global communication access from a device that fits comfortably in our pocket. It took the Internet 12 years to gather its first billion users, and a third of that time to reach three billion. By 2025, digital computing and communication technology will connect eight billion people to one online community. Never before in history have consumers had so much influence and power at their fingertips; businesses large and small must learn how to adapt and embrace such change. Kodak and Blockbuster exemplify how quickly the average lifespan of a company listed in the S&P 500 significantly decreased from 67 years in the 1920’s to 15 years today.

Robo Advising Opportunities and Challenges for your Clients

“Going with a robo-advisor is like buying a house with half a roof: You save on roofing costs, but when it rains, that’s not much solace.” The financial services industry is as competitive as ever and the quest for new clients and more assets is an ongoing threat from the competition of many advisors in the industry. They want to be certain that their relationship is strong and that the advisor knows what their greatest fears are instead of having a simple transaction relationship. They are also fee conscious. Does the advisor give them confidence that this is THE advisor that will take care of their families, living and health expenses and leave a legacy?  Building a legacy of trust is key to successful relationships and asset retention. But to accomplish this, the advisor will need to go above and beyond what most mediocre advisors do.

Wade Younger: The Value Wave

Our society has concluded that the way to become a world-class organization is to create superior process performance. That is what ensures better quality products and services for customers, and this is why so many companies have turned to Six Sigma. However, Six Sigma practitioners have long struggled with showing people how to change their culture. That is where The Value Wave comes in. The Value Wave is a set of service principles that starts and ends with people, not processes. In most companies, leaders want to do three things, increase production and revenue, while at the same time decrease cost and waste, while doing so with a customer first focus. But it takes the right people who are trained to amplify their skills for change to achieve this. The Value Wave is a universal tool to integrate organizational development methodologies and business transformation tools with one solitary purpose, to improve business performance. This simultaneous migration of people, process and technology is designed to accomplish strategic and financial goals.
