Ed Slott and Company's eSeminar Series

The largest opportunity in our industry’s history is here: a recovering and rising stock market, a Baby Boomer boom of new prospects and a complicated tax code few understand. Yet, most financial advisors are not educated enough to capture new IRA rollover business and keep existing clients from fleeing in fear.

Ed Slott and Company's Instant IRA Success eSeminar Series fills an industry void, utilizing IRA expertise to directly impact your existing relationships and your bottom line.

The NEW tax laws have created consumer confusion, and in turn MASSIVE opportunities to stake your claim as an expert in your field. Guide your clients to safety and impress potential high-net-worth clients with the latest IRA distribution planning strategies.

Our online training series includes 7 web-based sessions packaged as a group or available separately with dates running through 2017!
