The ten Greatest Monetary Advisor Conferences To Attend In 2024


After a number of years of turmoil attributable to the pandemic, monetary advisor conferences appear to have discovered a “new [post-pandemic] regular”, with occasions as soon as once more rising (some already surpassing their pre-pandemic highs). However that is to not say that the convention panorama was not altered by the pandemic; as a substitute, the pandemic seems to have served as a catalyst that accelerated tendencies that had been already underway, such that monetary advisor conferences immediately look substantively totally different than they did only a decade in the past.

Most notable is the truth that {industry} associations aren’t the drivers of advisor conferences that they as soon as had been; whereas a decade in the past, 75%+ of this “Greatest Conferences” listing consisted of assorted occasions run by {industry} associations, now it numbers lower than 25%. Then again, the previous decade has seen an explosion of ‘vendor conferences’, as increasingly more corporations have found it is extra economical to easily run their very own conferences (at a breakeven or perhaps a small loss) than to closely sponsor the conferences of {industry} associations.

A few of these vendor conferences are constructed to convey out their current advisor customers to get suggestions about and share the newest relating to their software program, however a rising variety of specialised conferences unto themselves have industry-leading content material within the specific area of the seller’s experience, from Snappy Kraken and Nitrogen’s advisor advertising conferences to DeVoe and Firm’s Elevate convention for managing the complicated monetary advisor enterprise.

On the similar time, new convention organizers have emerged as nicely – entities that see gaps between what conferences distributors host (primarily based on the software program or providers they promote) and what associations present – resulting in new area of interest conferences like Advisor2X’s “Shift” convention on behavioral finance, to AdvisorCircle’s “Future Proof” convention (or as some are calling it, the Future Proof Pageant Expertise!).

The top outcome from the advisor perspective, although, shouldn’t be dissimilar to what it was prior to now: an amazing variety of conferences to select from, and an excellent problem for advisors in determining which of them are actually value attending and sinking what is usually greater than $2,000 (in registration charges, resorts, and airfare), plus a number of days out of the workplace, within the hopes that it’s going to show to be use of time.

As somebody who has been talking at 50–70 conferences a yr for 18 years myself, I’ve seen the nice and unhealthy of our big selection of {industry} occasions, from the {industry} associations to the broker-dealers and insurance coverage corporations and RIA custodians, the rise of vendor conferences and media-driven occasions, personal firm occasions, and extra. Because of this, I’m typically requested for my very own solutions of what, actually, are the {industry}’s ‘finest’ conferences to attend.

Having up to date our annual convention listing yearly since, I am excited now to current my latest listing of “Prime Monetary Advisor Conferences” for the upcoming 2024 yr, with a specific deal with parsing by means of each the {industry} affiliation occasions, the rising variety of vendor and standalone convention suppliers… with our traditional strategy of parsing out the ‘finest’ convention for a variety of advisors with distinctive wants, from those that are searching for a convention on advertising or observe administration (which varies relying on whether or not you are a mid-sized agency or bigger enterprise), or who wish to see the newest in advisor expertise, want assist in tips on how to worth monetary planning charges and systematize their recommendation providing, are merely searching for general convention or specific superior tax and technical convention… or simply need a completely totally different convention expertise (for which Future Proof stands alone!).
