Introduction to blockchain and digital assets - Just another tulip bulb? Or global transformation?

Description

Is Bitcoin just another pump-and-dump scheme? Or will this revolutionary technology transform commerce on a planetary scale? As a financial advisor, you must become knowledgeable about the blockchain, as well as bitcoin and other digital assets, so you can decide whether your clients should invest – or stay away.

Everyone knows about bitcoin’s massive volatility. But few can explain the blockchain, bitcoin’s underlying technology. This vital session can help remove the mystery about these innovative technologies, enabling you to have meaningful conversations with your clients about blockchain and digital assets – while also helping you learn the potential implications for your own advisory practice.

Crypto/Blockchain session: Part 1

Description

How big is blockchain and digital assets?

Currently, various college endowments are investing in bitcoin and other digital assets and banks worldwide have collectively invested billions of dollars in blockchain technology. This section will discuss what some major institutions are doing, and what this could mean for your advisory practice.

Tokenization: The future of investing

For centuries, investors have been able to buy tiny pieces of huge companies. Why stop there? Today, you can buy small slices of apartment buildings in Manhattan, rare wines, Old Masters, even exotic sports cars. Using the blockchain, investors can now buy a token (akin to a stock’s share) of just about anything. Tokenization could revolutionize asset ownership on a global scale – and this session will show you both how tokenization works and the potential implications for investment management and asset allocation.

Investing opportunities in blockchain and digital assets

With virtually any computer, you can mine bitcoin on your own, or you can buy bitcoins from an online exchange, similar to buying stocks through a brokerage firm. You can also invest in funds that buy digital assets or acquire a stake in companies that are building blockchain technology. This section will show you the wide variety of investment opportunities available for you and your clients – and how to potentially incorporate these strategies into your practice.

Power of Voice: 3 Ways Voice Technology Will Impact Your Business in 2020

Description

Fact: Smart speakers are the fastest growing consumer technology of all time, outpacing radio, television, the PC, and the smartphone. Businesses who wait to adopt voice technology will fall behind like the ones who missed the boat from print to digital or desktop to mobile.

Your clients today are increasingly using voice; but your clients tomorrow will simply expect it. The Tap, Type, & Swipe era is giving way to VoiceFirst. Gartner predicts that 30% of searches will be screenless in 2020. You need a strategy.

From voice search (SEO) to branded audio content like podcasts and Flash Briefings, establishing your brand now on AI assistants like Alexa and Google will pay dividends as these platforms become dominant.

Join Emily Binder, a leading marketing strategist and voice expert to find out why voice matters and what it means for your marketing, your client relationships, and your ability to stay relevant.

Tax and regulatory

The SEC says bitcoin is not a security, and the Federal Reserve says bitcoin is not currency. The IRS says bitcoin is property subject to taxation, but the CFTC says bitcoin is a commodity. What’s a taxpayer to do? Currently, there’s little federal regulation over bitcoin – Five companies have asked the SEC for permission to launch a bitcoin ETF. Will the agency approve the applications? This section examines the crucial tax and regulatory status, to help you manage your practice and provide guidance to your clients.*

Beyond bitcoin: Portfolio diversification in the digital age

If you want to recommend digital assets to your clients, how would you go about it? Which digital assets would you recommend, and to what degree? In this section, you’ll discover the options available to you, and how you can potentially increase your client’s portfolio diversification.

Digital assets: Is it an alternative asset class?

In an asset allocation model, should bitcoin be listed as equity, as debt, or as a completely new asset class? This section will tie together everything you’ve learned in today’s program, and show you the two startling reasons why you might consider placing digital assets into your clients’ portfolios.

*TD Ameritrade does not provide tax advice. We suggest your clients consult with a tax-planning professional with regard to their personal circumstances.

Smart rebalancing technology can help you reduce the cumbersome, manual rebalancing process from days (or even weeks) down to minutes. This live demonstration of the features and benefits of iRebal® on Veo®—the most widely adopted and highest-rated rebalancing platform*—encompasses everything from household rebalancing and cash management to model management and tax loss harvesting any time of the year. Understand how you can use iRebal® and Model Market Center together to help increase efficiency so you can spend less time with spreadsheets, more time serving your clients, and essentially become your own overlay manager.

*Source: 2018 T3 / Advisor Perspectives / Inside Information Software Survey

Legal:

iRebal® does not provide tax or investment advice. An advisor’s use of iRebal® does not guarantee higher returns or assure protection against losses.

Advisors using iRebal® set account-level preferences based on client needs and establish asset allocation parameters based on selected investment models. Tax or investment efficiencies achieved or losses realized in accounts rebalanced by iRebal®, are the result of such preference and parameter settings. iRebal® offers a flexible tax harvesting feature that allows you to set various loss thresholds for taxable accounts, total loss targets for portfolios, and choose a replacement security for each harvested security.

Understanding unconscious bias

Description

No matter how open-minded we might like to think we are, we are all inherently biased. These biases develop over the course of our lives as a result of the influences of our friends and family, our personal experiences, our cultural background, and external influences such as the media. Unconscious bias can skew talent and performance reviews. It also affects who gets hired, promoted, and developed—and this unwittingly undermines an organization's culture. Learn how to come to grips with our unconscious bias and take important steps toward creating a more fair and inclusive workplace.

• The value of ETFs’ transparency and dual avenues of liquidity

Liquidity, longevity, and legacy: The pillars of future-ready portfolios | Sponsored session by BlackRock

Description

Most portfolios have done well over the past decade-long bull market. The question on everyone’s mind is whether your portfolio will meet your clients’ demands over the next decade and beyond.

As more investors start to think about the implications of late-cycle investing, the purpose and methods of portfolio construction will change dramatically. How do investors build portfolios that are less focused on markets and more focused on balancing liquidity needs, longevity risks, and legacy ambitions? How should investors ready themselves for a period of potential lower long-term returns and higher volatility? What non-investment levers will matter most in determining success or failure? These critical questions are forcing advisors to evaluate whether their portfolios are ready to transition from the era of great markets to the era of great advice.

Over the past two years, we analyzed more than 22,000 portfolios for 4,700 advisors. This session will teach you ways to help manage longevity risk within client portfolios, integrate factors that help to drive return and limit volatility, explore portfolio construction including alternatives, and evaluate whether outsourcing investment management is the right move for your business.
