The Digital Afterlife               

Did you know the average person now has over 170 online accounts? And that number is expected to grow to over 200 by next year.   We’re now dependent on the internet to conduct much of our lives.  It’s how we communicate.  We have email, visit friends through social media, look for love, shop, bank and even invest. Technology has made our lives easier but for wealth and estate management, it’s added new challenges and complexities.

Digital property has different and distinct characteristics from physical assets. They can be lost, expire or be hidden. There are several influencing factors that need to be considered when building plans including unwavering laws, powerful authorities, changing client behavior and many risks and liabilities that didn’t exist before. As a growing and significant component to portfolios, it’s necessary to include digital holdings in managing financial and sentimental portfolios.  This new asset type is multi-faceted property and constantly evolving.  What can advisors do to be prepared? 

During his presentation, Lee will address the many facets of digital assets, custodian culture and impacting rules and regulations. We’ll review how a client’s behavior and attitudes determine the ability of advisors to meet their obligations and duties.  We’ll also look at how innovation can quickly and dramatically change even the best laid plans.  This program is for anyone wanting to get an edge and understanding for dealing with digital property.
