Enjoy the current installment of "weekend reading for financial planners" - this week's edition starts off with a big announcement from the CFP Board, that the current Chair of the Board of Directors and two members of the Disciplinary and Ethics Commission are resigning amid an ethics probe. There's also another article from the CFP Board explaining their current position on when the fiduciary duty does, and does not, apply to CFP certificants. From there, we have an article on how popular investment bear Gary Shilling is remarkably upbeat and bullish about the financial advising business itself, an article about how young millionaires under age 44 have dramatically higher expectations for digital and social media presence from their advisors, an interview with Behavior Gap artist and author Carl Richards, and an interesting technical article about how to plan for clients' digital assets. We also have a few investment and retirement articles, including an analysis by Wade Pfau of the new "Stand Alone Living Benefit" (SALB) income guarantee for investment accounts, a study by David Blanchett regarding a new metric and approach to measuring the efficacy of various retirement income approaches, and a discussion from Bob Veres about investment advisor Gary Miller and has rather unique and analytical approach to making investment decisions. We wrap up with two very intriguing articles - one a study that finds that the brain is actually physiologically incapable of both empathizing and analyzing at the same time, and the other a discussion about how setting bold, ambitious, unrealistic goals can actually be the best path to success. Enjoy the reading!
