"NAPLIA has been a longstanding supporter of the CFDD. Their Advisor Conference is one of the best educational programs available to advisors, consistently providing leading edge material and perspectives," said Gary Sutherland, NAPLIA CEO. According to Mr. Sutherland, "Carriers have recognized the superior content and it has helped us negotiate expanded coverage and fill the gaps. To my knowledge, the CFDD is the only conference facilitating insurance discounts for advisor attendees."

"The CFDD's Advisor Conference has always offered more content, value and CE than any other retirement plans advisory conference," said Phil Chiricotti, CFDD President. The CFDD's broad CE includes core, hard to get ethics and accounting. Texas-based professionals will also benefit from insurance and legal CE. According to Mr. Chiricotti, "The value added by NAPLIA could include significant discounts and expanded coverage for advisors and their clients."

Chiricotti further notes that, "Approximately 50% of advisor E & O coverage is substandard and more than 50% of the insurance salespeople lack specialized knowledge in this area. RIA/IAR type policy premiums generally range from $3,000 to $30,000 and the savings could be as high as 25%, far more than the cost of attending CFDD '14." The additional coverage could also help distinguish advisors during finals presentations.

CFDD '14, Enhancing Margins, Enterprise Value & Motivating Sponsors To Implement Your Recommendations, is a premier educational and networking event for the retirement plans advisory industry. Hosted at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio River Walk Hotel, the October 15-17, 2014 advisor conference offers unmatched content, value and CE in an ideal networking environment.
