When it comes to managing post-tax investments, the level of complexity and opportunity exponentially grows. It’s not about what you make, it’s about what you keep. Tax drag can be one of the largest expenses your client will ever pay as they continue to grow their wealth and something that can devalue your wealth management firm.

This is where C2P’s Tax Management Journey® Training can help propel you into a whole new class of investment advisor.

In this seminar, industry leader Dave Alison, CFP®, EA, BPC │ President and Founding Partner of C2P, will help you understand the significant difference of managing pre-tax investments vs. post-tax investments. He will share with you how tax-sensitive portfolio construction can have a massive financial impact on your clients and your firm, in addition to providing specific solutions you can implement today to transform your business.

We’ll help you learn and understand:

  • The current tax landscape on investment portfolios through 2022
  • How to use your clients’ 1099s as a roadmap to tax savings opportunities
  • How to calculate your clients tax drag on their portfolio — an expense they never knew they had
  • Portfolio management strategies to mitigate taxes and enhance after-tax returns
  • How incorporating tax management can add tens of millions of dollars of additional AUM to your firm and greatly increase its valuation
