The inaugural NFAW experience will take place September 15-19, 2014 in New York City. Over the course of five days, investors, advisors and media will converge on Time Square's outdoor plazas (Broadway 42nd street to 44th Street), for a mix of resource booths, press events and advisor-led panels.
Over 100 industry experts from such institutions as Morgan Stanley, the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Merrill Lynch, Stonehenge Equity Partners and Investment News are also scheduled to present, including Ara Oghoorian CFA, CFP® of ACap Asset Management. “I am honored to be a part of such an important event wherein investors and budding investors alike will understand the importance of choosing the right advisor,” said Ara Oghoorian, president of ACap Asset Management.
Advisors Ahead CEO, Craig Pfeiffer (former Vice Chairman of Morgan Stanley Smith Barney), heads up the NFAW Advisory Board. “During National Financial Advisor Week, clients, investors and consumers will learn so much about what they are faced with today,” said Pfeiffer, as he stressed the importance of retirement, estate and college planning. “There will be opportunities for people to learn how a financial advisor can help them navigate those issues.”
The week of events will culminate with the nationwide sweepstakes for a fully paid college education. The winner will be a matriculating freshman by fall 2016, and the prize will cover full tuition, room and board at the winner's school of choice. As September is also National College Funding Month, the sweepstakes is meant to reinforce the benefits of hiring a financial advisor.
“Everyone needs advice to reach their financial goals, whether it be owning a home or sending a child to college,” said Stuller. “NFAW will show the world that there is a smart advisor for everyone.”
