    Program Description:  

    Obliquity and Business Owners:  A New Approach for Wealth Management

    Successful business owners are essential creators of wealth in the US economy. As such they are highly prized clients for wealth management firms. Most often, however, the majority of the business owner’s wealth is tied up in their business. Many of these business owners are baby boomers on the verge of exiting their business.

    The average wealth manager recognizes this . . . and leads with a strategy for “diversifying your asset base” and thus, completely misses the point and only creates resistance from the business owner.

    We present a new approach for wealth management firms and advisors that puts the business owner truly at the center of the puzzle. Rather than taking a direct, technical expert approach, we suggest an oblique approach that focuses more on the holistic needs of the business owner. In so doing, advisors learn how to increase their AUM and gain new client leads.

    Presenters:  Orange Kiwi Principals Andrew Taylor and Allie Taylor

    Note:  The information delivered in this program is relevant both to our financial planners as small business owners planning their own practice succession or growth, and to their ability to bring on small business owners on as clients of their financial planning and wealth management firms.

    Location: Sky Song, Scottsdale and McDowell Rd

    Join fellow chapter members on Friday, December 8th, in the afternoon from 3 pm to kick off the holiday season with the spirit of giving.

    Our chapter volunteers will be making Pizza Pizza Pizza on the St. Vincent de Paul campus, a fun and favorite way to feed the hungry on a Friday night.

    Once we are done making the Pizza, those chapter volunteers who are interested and able may remain from 5:30 - 7 pm to help serve the Pizzas to local families, for their "Friday night out".

    Take a look at our chapter volunteers in action last December, in this short 1 minute video clip.

    We want as many volunteers as possible, because if you are interested in lending a hand, this campus can turn your time and talent into a treasure for someone in our community.

    Join us as we celebrate each other and our community!
