What the Webinar Will Cover:
The next 15 years will be critical.
In the next 15 years, the US and Canada will experience the largest transfer of wealth any culture has ever experienced. Trillions of dollars of personal wealth will move from the saver generation to a more free-wheeling “consumer” generation.
Why is this important?
Kids don’t live where mom and dad lived. The value of family assets: businesses, savings instruments; investments (commercial real estate, art, gold, vehicles), residences, as well as stocks and bonds will move to the kids.
Heidi Marttila-Losure, DakotaFire put it this way…
Wealth flows out of rural places with nearly every funeral—but in that problem is an opportunity.
