Convergent Wealth Advisors Examines the Future of Healthcare

Explores Approaching Shift, Impact on Wealth Management, Overarching Effects

Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

Douglas Wolford, President and COO of Convergent Wealth Advisors, offers an opinion piece focused on the future of healthcare in America. This insightful article focuses on how upcoming healthcare shifts may affect all Americans, including the nation’s wealthiest families and individuals – and will place new and possibly unfamiliar responsibilities on wealth managers.

“With the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and Healthcare.gov, the timing seemed right to move beyond the political wrangling to address the real issues that everyone should take into consideration,” states Mr. Wolford. “I believe the days of defined benefit healthcare—at least the kinds of benefits we’ve grown up with—are numbered.”

Mr. Wolford is responsible for executive and operational management at Convergent after many years working in the financial services, technology, and healthcare fields. Additionally, he is an adept writer on “lifestyle” management topics related to high net worth investors. His areas of recent focus include investments of passion, antiques, and healthcare. Mr. Wolford actively participates in pro-bono and advisory activities, and sits on the boards of several for- and not-for-profit organizations.
