Competitive industry leaders convene to address the future of advice while supporting diversity and inclusion
PHILADELPHIA, PA – July 28, 2020 — Asset-Map Holdings Inc. (Asset-Map) today announced AdviceTech.LIVE, a live, virtual event that gives financial professionals unprecedented access to top financial technology executives who will speak on a wide range of forward-thinking topics and ideas. These industry leaders will debate their brands’ visions, the future of the industry, their diversity and inclusion initiatives, and more. The event is sponsored by 20 market-leading technology firms, and half of all gross ticket sales will benefit the CFP Board’s Center for Financial Planning’s Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, which supports diversity in the financial planning industry by providing education and mentorship programs.
AdviceTech.LIVE will take place virtually on Thursday, August 27, 2020, from 10:30 AM-5:00 PM EDT, and attendance is open to the entire advice industry, including wealth managers, financial planners, and asset managers. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the technology they use every day; hearing directly from the industry’s top financial technology executives and their organizations via panel discussions, virtual booths, and group demonstrations. The event creates an exciting opportunity for industry experts to challenge each other, differentiate themselves in an open forum, and respond to questions from event attendees in real-time. Directly following the event, moderators will also host a program wrap-up, highlighting key takeaways. Five core advisor technology solutions will be discussed, including Financial Planning, Portfolio Management, CRM, Marketing Tools, and ‘Practice Magnifiers.’
“For too long, the technology that runs advisors’ practices has been reserved for those who know where to look,” says H. Adam Holt, CFP, ChFC, Asset-Map CEO and event organizer. “At Asset-Map, we saw an opportunity in these unprecedented times to create accessibility to tech leadership unlike ever before. As a fellow architect of advisor technology and a former financial advisor, I wanted to invite all advisors into the ‘room where it happens’ – creating an open forum to share the future of competitive solutions and brand vision on one platform.”
“We are extremely grateful to Asset-Map for their generous support of our Diversity and Inclusion initiative,” said D.A. Abrams, CAE, Managing Director of the CFP Board Center for Financial Planning. “This will greatly assist us in our efforts to make competent and ethical financial planning advice accessible to every American.”
