Putting a Value on your Value: Quantifying Advisors’ Alpha



Thank you to the sponsor of this event - Vanguard
Speaker: Eric Pickens, CFP®

1 CE credit - CFP, CIMA, CLU/ChFC

This presentation delves into the concept of Vanguard Advisor's Alpha®, which outlines how you can add value, or alpha, through relationship-based services such as financial planning, discipline, and guidance, rather than by trying to outperform the market.

The research includes seven "quantification modules" summarizing key wealth-management best practices and providing a reasonable framework for describing and further differentiating your value proposition.

Use this information to:

  1. Discover five modules that help quantify the benefits of advisor's alpha.
  2. Understand the intermittent, but significant, value that relationship-based services can ultimately bring to a portfolio.
  3. Learn how to quantify benefits such as guiding clients to "stay the course" as compared to the alternate history they would have experienced with a knee-jerk response to the market.

Join us to meet people like you who are interested in learning more about the financial planning profession, developing additional skills, and connecting with others who share the same passions. We aim to foster professional growth and peer-to-peer development in a casual setting where we can share questions and concerns along with advice and wisdom.  


Registration is limited to the first 30 people who sign up.  Once we reach capacity a waiting list will be started.  If you register and are unable to attend please be sure to let us know so that we can open your spot up to someone on the waiting list.



Who is NexGen?: Everyone age 36 & under who is interested in pursuing their personal & professional growth.


When: September 20, 2017 @ 11:30am


Where: Cyclone Anaya's Mexican Kitchen - 5761 Woodway Dr. - Houston TX 77057


Cost: $0 (this is a free event and lunch will be provided)
