About the event:
This year’s theme is based on conversations we have every day with clients. As the world has become increasingly complex, money can make things even more complicated and stressful. Different generations will have different perspectives. Everyone has different life experiences and goals, and that is the underlying cause of so many financial issues. As Morgan Housel put it “A lot of financial debates are just people with different time horizons talking over each other.” How and where we get our information is also completely different. These factors combine to cause poor communication, mistakes, and even resentment.
The world is changing every day. Whether it is in the classroom or at the kitchen table, we are simply not effectively talking about money across generations. Our goal is to bring together business leaders from different generations to discuss how we can communicate more effectively and use shared values to filter out the noise and confidently make financial decisions at every stage in life.
