MELBOURNE BEACH, Fla., June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Michael Brohawn today announced the launch of his first book, The Wealth Advisors Guide to Life Insurance: A Crash Course for Trustees, Attorneys, CPAs and Family Offices. After a successful stint developing life insurance plans for high-net-worth clients and over a decade managing life insurance for trustees and fiduciaries nationwide, Michael is uniquely qualified to share his personal insight and expertise to advisors interested in helping clients develop effective life insurance strategies.
The Wealth Advisors Guide to Life Insurance is a comprehensive yet succinct handbook that walks the advisor through a well-defined process for implementing life insurance strategies. After reading this book, an advisor will understand the underlying characteristics of each policy type and be able to help determine the best policy for each particular client. The book even includes a chapter detailing tactics to secure cost-efficient coverage.
Michael's work with fiduciaries tasked with maintaining policy health is evident in the second half of the book where he focuses on in-force policy management and outlines a prudent process to successfully repurpose policies when client goals change. Life settlements, a topic growing more important for wealth advisors to understand is the subject of another chapter and provides clear guidance on when and how to sell a policy. The book includes an insightful section outlining the mistakes Michael has seen in the trust market, as well as a list of best practices. The book ends with a chapter describing the ways advisors can put the information in the book to use in their practice.
"I have spent my career either acquiring or managing life insurance policies. In that time, I have worked with advisors across all disciplines. Each professional—trustee, attorney, CPA, or family office advisor—has a role to play in the long-term success of their client's life insurance. I have always felt the more knowledge each can bring to the process, the better the outcome will be. That is why I wrote this book."
In addition to publishing this book, Michael is providing education to peers, as he has over the last decade. "I have a passion for educating, and in my writing and public speaking, I have tried to provide vital information that fiduciaries and wealth advisors can use to help clients while increasing customer service and improving their business model."
The Wealth Advisors Guide to Life Insurance: A Crash Course for Trustees, Attorneys, CPAs, and Family Offices is available online for $15.95 at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Bulk book pricing and educational speaking engagements for trust, legal, accounting and advisory firms and associations interested in upgrading services in life insurance, are available.
