TAMPA, Fla., Nov. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its investment to grow and develop the IFP Plan Advisors group, Independent Financial Partners, a hybrid registered independent adviser in Tampa, Florida, will hold its first national retirement plan conference, Forum 2015, Nov. 3-5 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
As of November 2015, approximately 130 advisors throughout the country are affiliated with IFP Plan Advisors. Combined, they have an estimated 1,400 plans with $25 billion in assets under advisement.
IFP Plan Advisors was rebranded earlier this year under the leadership of Kimberly Shaw Elliott, president of IFP Plan Advisors and in-house ERISA counsel.
"We expect this to be a fast-paced event targeted directly to enhancing our advisors' practices. It is designed to leverage new perspectives from external specialists with thought-provoking insights from the some of the nation's most experienced plan advisors, all from IFP," Elliott said. "We intend to highlight how our advisors might collaborate for success as well as capitalize upon the strength of IFP while preserving their identities as independent businesses."
During the conference, advisors will learn about how the latest legal and regulatory actions will impact their plan sponsor clients and attend a fast-track CEFEX workshop to be certified for maintaining best practices as fiduciaries. Additionally, advisors will be offered IFP's resources to fill their branding, public relations and data needs.
"IFP Plan Advisors provides the resources and support that allow retirement plan advisors to focus on building their businesses," said William Hamm, IFP's chief executive officer. "Retirement plan advisors are an important component of IFP's diverse group of financial professionals."
