Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) August 03, 2013
“Impact Of Health On Wealth Planning In Shaping Family Priorities” will be a featured topic at the Institute for Preparing Heirs®(IPH) hallmark wealth advisor professional training, "The Great Wealth Transfer: Attracting, Engaging & Retaining MultiGenerational Families", Nov. 3-5, 2013, at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Ca. This training is open to financial advisors, estate attorneys, family office executives, CPA’s and other professionals who serve high-net-worth individuals and families.
The IPH training program offers tools, resources and knowledge for advisors to position their practices at the forefront of the next big “sea change” in wealth management—how to deliver advice to high-net-worth families that bridges the gap between preparing assets for heirs and preparing heirs for assets.
The training faculty includes experts and thought-leaders on topics of non-financial issues surrounding generational wealth transfer, and the link between family dynamics and successful wealth transfer.
“The Impact Of Health On Wealth Planning In Shaping Family Priorities” session will be led by IPH faculty member Dr. Carol J. Scott, M.D., M.S.Ed, F.A.C.E.P., a practicing emergency physician and wellness consultant, and author of the book, The CEO Model of Wellness: Managing your Health Like a Fortune 500 Company.
Dr. Scott's session addresses why advisors and their clients should include health and wellness management as a part of the family’s estate plan. According to Dr. Scott, an unexpected health issue can derail even the most well thought-out estate plan and wealth management strategy, often leading to the erosion of family assets. She will focus on the value to families of having a unified vision for family wellness and the role of the advisor.
