also benefits financial advisors

Increase revenue

advised funds and trust services
Build relationships across

multiple generations
friends who share their causes
Develop strong referral
sources
- Establish productive relationships with your client’s other advisors
Insulate your client
relationships
- Addressing charitable planning positions you to maintain control and
coordination over all aspects of your client’s financial life
- Successfully helping clients address some of their most personal needs

Recent Charitable Trends
What is the greatest challenge to addressing your client’s philanthropic needs?
What do advisor’s need?
•Lack of advisor expertise in philanthropic planning: “I need to learn the topic more.”
•Financial insecurity: “Market conditions have clients concerned that they will not have enough
to support family needs over the long term.”
•Lack of company-provided product: “My company does not have a donor-advised fund.”
•Lack of client direction: “Most people have a vague idea of being charitable, but no clue what
they really want to do.”
•One advisor was clear that training was needed on the “softer skills.”
