2022 Alliance Fall Forum

Our world has changed. The motivations, interests, and expectations of both our clients and employees have evolved – but are we keeping up with them? We believe now is the time to pause and Rediscover who we serve, how we serve them, and most importantly, why we serve them.

In this spirit of curiosity and exploration, our 2022 Alliance Fall Forum will kick off with Going Places: an immersive networking reception followed by the 2022 Alliance Young Professionals Awards Dinner. The reception is a unique opportunity to network with fellow attendees and look at the world through fresh eyes. Be sure to show up on time: we will be raffling off all-inclusive excursions, including trips to South Africa, the Maldives, and Italy!

The reception will be immediately followed by our 2022 Young Professionals Awards Dinner, recognizing our industry's under-40 rising stars. This evening has been generously sponsored by Haute Explore.

Sessions include...
  • Alliance Research: Talent & Compensation in Family Wealth
  • Hearing Their Voice: A Panel of Young Professionals
  • Finding Purpose: Going Beyond "Helping the Rich Get Richer’"
  • Managing a Bespoke Investment Experience
  • Diversifying Your Client Experience
  • Is High-tech Destroying High-touch?
  • The Next Frontier: The Intersection of Well-being & Wealth

All FWA member firms are granted two complimentary seats at this event. Members must log in before registering. Before registering, please confirm you’ve been authorized by your firm to reserve a complimentary seat.

Family Dynamics:

Register Here (Members Only)
PLEASE NOTE: These monthly sessions are facilitated conversations on topics relevant to your work; they are not webinars or presentations. We kindly request that participants come:
  • Prepared to be on screen. Feel free to eat your lunch! If you want to go off screen for bites, please then hop back on.
  • Ready to participate in conversation. The conversation is facilitated by experts who will share their advice, but the main point is to capture the wisdom within the group.
  • With questions and examples pertaining to the topic of the month.
  • Open to learn through collaboration.
  • Expecting an informal and organically flowing conversation (not a presentation!).

Each live session will be driven by member-submitted questions centered on that month's topic. You can submit questions through the registration link below. Due to the delicate nature of family dynamics issues, these discussions will not be recorded and must be attended live. Questions will be addressed in the order they are received.

NEW Leader Roundtables
Launched just last month, our new Operations Leader Roundtable is exclusively for senior operations professionals at FWA member firms – those responsible for project management, human resources, and internal operations. Discussion topics include talent acquisition, development, and retention; technology assessment, integration, and optimization; and client operations best practices.

Our CMO Leader Roundtable has grown and expanded into a CXM Leader Roundtable, an interdisciplinary group of client experience and marketing professionals practicing in the multi-family wealth space. Discussion topics include successfully cultivating prospects into clients; educating the market with a clear value proposition; and segmentation, communication, and engagement strategies.

Alliance Leader Roundtables convene intimate groups of like-minded professionals in a safe environment to share best practices, relevant experiences, and common challenges and solutions. Members can request involvement by contacting our President, Rachel Hyman. Non-members, learn more about membership here!

Open for rolling participation!

FWA worked with a team of experts (from Bain & Co., Charles Schwab Advisor Services, Pitcairn, Greycourt, Ballentine Partners, and WE Family Offices) to develop an industry-specific approach to evaluating and benchmarking your client experience.
