Program Description and Benefits:
Join us for a discussion focusing on an overview of the rapidly evolving risk landscape and how it relates to the changing dynamics of estate planning, actively managing risk and perpetuating wealth in a global environment being shaped by political risk, climate change, pandemics and economic uncertainty. This session will focus on both traditional and emerging risk categories that individuals must contemplate for estate planning and building resiliency. Additionally we will cover new approaches to managing risk, leveraging insurance and risk transfer solutions to enable more dynamic and agile risk mitigation for clients.

The William M. Goldenzweig Memorial Lecture was established in 1980 in memory of William M. Goldenzweig, CLU, who died in a plane crash during his presidency of the Council in 1979. The annual lecture focuses on an estate planning topic of particular relevance to the life insurance industry.
