Meetings & Events

FPA-NENY programs enhance your awareness
of issues affecting many people.

2022-2023 FPA-NENY Calendar of Events

Whether you do comprehensive financial planning or specialize in just one facet of it, there are so many topic areas that a CFP® needs to have knowledge about.

The broader the scope of your knowledge, the more value you bring to the client relationship. Just think of all of the topics covered in the CFP® study program!

Because financial planning is about the client’s entire financial life, it is so important to be aware of how little details fit into the big picture. The key is recognizing the issues and being able to provide solutions, whether you do so yourself or turn them to someone who handles that area.

You have found your place for solutions at the FPA-NENY!

10 CRITICAL IRA ERRORS ADVISORS MUST AVOID

For more than 40 years, IRAs have been available as a retirement-savings vehicle, but the rules surrounding them are constantly changing, and they are incredibly – and deceptively – complex. Each year, client mistakes, advisor errors and oversights by financial institutions cost clients millions of dollars in unnecessary taxation. This session seeks to reverse that trend by helping advisors to identify and avoid 10 of the most frequent and costly IRA mistakes.
