Financial Professionals/Aging Clients   

(Six One-Hour Sessions over Six Weeks)


                                                                        We are now an aging society.  The 90+ age group is the fastest

                                                                        growing demographic.  Leading edge Boomers have passed

                                                                        the 70-year threshold.  10,000  Boomers are turning 65 everyday. 

                                                                        The first of Generation X turned 50-years old last year. It will no

                                                                        longer be a novelty to have a client with diminished capacity. 

                                                                         It will more likely be an expected event as clients age and

                                                                         live longer. 


There has never been a time in our history where the aging population is advancing in such unprecedented numbers.  By the year 2030, 1 in 5 people in the United States will be over the age of 65.  It will be the first time

in history that there are more older people than children.   Normal brain aging changes make it more of a challenge for aging clients to efficiently take care of their finances.  As age goes up, the risk of dementia increases.  This situation can put a lifetime of financial planning at risk.  To complicate this tsunami of events

even more is the fact that the Boomer group, along with their parents, hold 42 trillion dollars in assets. 

This makes this group a high risk target for fraud, scams and exploitation.


This course goes into detail on all of the challenges the financial advisor faces in working with aging clients. 

From the aging brain, ergonomic issues, recognizing and dealing with diminished capacity to protecting

your client from frauds, scams, and exploitation, this course is a deep dive into understanding the best

practices of working with your aging clients.


The Financial Planners Course will position you to make the needed adjustments in your practice to

understand and best-serve your aging clients.  Supporting materials, case studies, references and

resources are all designed to prepare and support you and your aging clients.


Contact Pat for more details on how this course will facilitate the best client service now – and in the future.
