What to Do When Your Ship Comes In

Successfully managing financial windfalls is tough for most people. It is more challenging and complex than most recipients anticipate. It is also difficult for many financial advisors to understand how to help newly wealthy clients.  At first blush, it seems so easy. Clients who experience financial windfalls should just invest the money wisely, of course. But, there are a host of potential emotional issues that may arise and should be dealt with, prior to doing anything. 

Attendees will learn: 

• Definition of financial windfalls

• What financial windfalls can mean to, and for, recipients

• Dealing with the emotions the accompany financial windfalls

• Dealing with requests for money (from family, friends, and attractive business offers)

• Setting appropriate goals

• Settling in to a new reality
