You are cordially invited to join us for an Exit Planning Awareness Event. Join us and Chris Snider, the 2016 AM&AA Thought Leader of the Year, for a complimentary session on “Breaking Down Professional Silos: The Advisor of the Future.”
Chris will be discussing the importance of multidisciplinary transition planning for business owners, the size of the exit planning market, and opportunity for professional advisors to participate in what is often a business owner deal of a lifetime.
Why Exit Planning
Within the next 20 years, in excess of 90 million people in the United States and Canada will be retiring (the baby boomer generation born between 1946 and 1964). It is estimated that one of every two privately held businesses will transition during this period, representing in excess of $10 trillion in wealth, the largest wealth transfer in the history of mankind.
EPI Colorado Chapter
With this launch event, we’re excited to introduce EPI’s monthly events to the local community with our focus on quality content, speakers, and education.
The purpose of the EPI Rocky Mountain Chapter is to create a forum for the local community of professional advisors to collaborate and address unique needs of our deal community; develop educational programs for business owners and professional advisors to build awareness and better prepare owners for the successful exit of their business; develop, encourage, and foster the adoption of best practices for the exit planning profession; and promote the common business interests of those business advisors engaged in the profession of exit planning.
The Exit Planning Institute is a national organization promoting education, collaboration, and credentialing within the field of Exit Planning. EPI’s process focuses on a multi-disciplinary approach to assisting business owners through ownership transitions – creating a revenue opportunity for advisors while delivering maximum value to owners.
