Managing money for the long term requires the right investment tools and business structure to sustain you through multiple cycles. Bloomberg L.P. and FP Transitions are excited to present an interactive program focused on the best practices for deploying Bloomberg tools across your investment strategy, and positioning your firm for long-term success.

Wealth management is an evolving business. Recent trends around consolidation, online planning tools, and evolving client needs, are changing the way advisors approach the industry. It is important for advisory professionals to see beyond the media’s noise and create businesses built to sustain, grow and be relevant through the generations.

Our program will:

• Examine Bloomberg data to provide insight into the wealth of today’s market – guiding you toward building business platforms designed to endure through the next 30 years.
• Focus on the ways investment advisors are leveraging Bloomberg within their analysis and portfolio management
• Building the next generation advisory practice.
