A panel of experts will discuss the following:

– When a private wealth manager should start considering the succession options available to them
– Why the issue is often overlooked, and creating a culture to change this
– Options for private wealth managers such as in-house mentoring, selling a business, or passing it over to a new generation
– The pitfalls and potential associated with merging or selling to another firm
– Who to entrust with your book of business, and retaining client trust throughout the process


– Drew DiMarino, senior vice president, eMoney
– Jay Hummel, managing director, Envestnet
