Making the Most of Inheriting an Annuity

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

How are you going to help your clients maximize their inheritance when they are suddenly the beneficiary of a nonqualified deferred annuity or an IRA?

The truth is, there are several distribution options for non-spouse beneficiaries of these tax-deferred investments that many financial advisors are unaware of. So what are they, and how can you deliver the best strategy to your clients?

Join InvestmentNews and Tom Duncan of Nationwide for a webcast examining these essential IRA and non-qualified annuity strategies.

During this conversation, advisors will:

* Learn the mechanics of how non-spouse beneficiaries of nonqualified deferred annuities and IRAs can inherit these accounts in a tax efficient manner through stretching
* Discover how to answer questions on the three T's of stretching: Timing, Trusts and Transferability
* Learn why becoming proficient at discussing and implementing the stretch concept can be good for your business

How cutting the expense drag on active management will benefit clients

Tuesday, August 25, 2015

Critics of active management often point to the lower costs of index and exchange–traded funds. But what most investors and many advisers don’t realize is that a wide variety of these costs are inherent in the mutual fund structure itself and that underperformance of some active strategies versus their passive rivals may be as much a direct result of these costs as any decisions around how the portfolio is managed.

This webcast will explain what these costs are, why they are a drag on performance and how the new, SEC-approved investment vehicle known as NextShares solves that problem by combining the cost effectiveness of exchange-traded funds with the advantages of active management.

Specifically, our panel of experts will discuss:

* How, absent the costs of the mutual fund structure itself, active management can be competitive with passive investing
* Why the administration of open-end fund transactions can be costly
* How long-terms investors in mutual funds today can be negatively impacted by the trading in and out of other investors
* How a fund's cash cushion for redemptions can adversely affect performance
* Ways investors may use the new structure most effectively
* Why the mutual fund structure produces "phantom" capital gains - and tax bills - for many investors
