Advanced investment and wealth professionals will learn how to navigate the dynamics of a new generation of clients and explore how technology can help them stay ahead of rapid changes in the industry at the Investment Management Consultants Association’s® (IMCA®) Focus on Next Generation Clients, Advisors, and Technology live program, June 5, 8:30 a.m.–3:45 p.m., at the Hilton San Francisco Financial District.
As the baby-boom generation nears retirement, millennials will take over the workforce, bringing with them vastly diverse ideas that will impact how money is managed and financial advice is delivered.
