Class Notes

3 Hour Insurance Ethics Program Description

With rates of dementia estimated to triple by 2050, the next 35 years will feature unprecedented drama in financial services and most of the action will be at the Crossroads of Money, Memory and Mercenaries.

As the fight over the fiduciary and suitability standards moves to the SEC, join us for a rigorous yet humorous exploration of the post Dodd-Frank financial services landscape as it relates to IL Insurance Producers and their ethics.

Topics to be discussed:

-Personal Responsibility

-The Ethics of the Situation

-Selling complex products to the elderly

-The new "weaponization" of regulation

-Alzheimer's meets the Baby Boomers

-Who is Glenn Neasham and why he matters
