OUT PROFESSIONALS INVITES YOU TO LEARN TODAY’S BEST PRACTICES IN FINANCIAL, ESTATE, AND TAX PLANNING FOR THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY.
Join Out Professionals on Wednesday, October 25, for a dynamic and empowering panel discussion to learn how financial, estate and tax planning professionals collaborate to help you and your LGBTQ family take control of truly important aspects of your lives.
Examine the stages of LGBTQ family development: Marriage and cohabitation agreements; adoption and alternative reproduction agreements; how to protect your estate through wills, trusts, healthcare proxies; and what happens if you get divorced.
Explore important tax considerations revolving around life events: LGBTQ family development — marriage, having children, buying a house, investing, and career changes.
Develop an understanding of the importance of long-term investing: discuss impactful and socially responsible investing; what you should expect from your financial advisor in 2017; and the process of comprehensive wealth management.
