Panel: Tips for switching to fees

Caroline A. Banks, FPFS; Kenneth E. Davy, Cert PFS, FCII; Gregory B. Gagne, ChFC; Gino Saggiomo, CFP 0.0

Among the questions the panel addresses:<br> • How do you properly value your advice?<br> • Do you base your fees on time spent, value added or a combination of the two?<br> • Do you pick a “line in the sand” date to transition clients to the model, or is there a transition period?<br> Gain proven ways to convince clients that paying for advice is best for them, tips for compliance, confidence in your ability to transition your practice and excitement about the opportunities ahead.
