Session Title:
Actionable Roth Business Building Strategies: A Vehicle for Tax Efficient Planning and Income

Retirement accounts are booming! U.S. retirement assets stand at more than $32 trillion – with $17 trillion* invested in IRAs and 401(k) plans alone.

This means we believe there will be tremendous opportunities for financial advisors who stay up-to-date on the latest tax rules governing tax-advantaged retirement accounts, understand the pitfalls, and leverage advanced and actionable Roth strategies. This informative seminar will also cover the latest retirement-related proposal coming out of Washington and highlight additional retirement topics and trends.

Participants will learn how to implement Roth accounts (IRA and 401(k)) as a tool in comprehensive financial and tax planning. This seminar will also explore new advanced planning opportunities –tactical strategies for winning business while protecting existing assets–providing a roadmap for guiding and advising high-net-worth investors with the latest IRA, 401(k) and Roth contribution, distribution, and conversion strategies.

Join Brian Dobbis as he discusses the following key topics:

  • What’s new
  • 2020 Legislative Outlook
  • Roth Conversions (pros, cons, and traps)
  • Back Door Roth
  • Supersize your Roth
  • Mega Back Door Roth
  • Advisor Action Plan
  • Your questions!

Learning Objectives:
    • New IRS guidance pertaining to Retirement accounts and the effect on Roth accounts
    • Building your retirement nest egg through advanced Roth strategies (contributions, conversions)
    • Become familiar with how Roth accounts play a vital role in tax planning

We anticipate offering 1.0 Hours CFP CE.
