Mitch Anthony, President of Advisor Insights Inc.

Based on his book, The New Retirementality: Planning Your Life and Living Your Dreams...At Any Age You Want!, Mitch will discuss how “Return on Life™”—getting the best life possible with the money you have—is replacing “Return on Investment” as the core consideration when planning for the future.

Learn about the confluence of four modern trends that herald the end of retirement thinking as we know it:
1. The evolving pursuit of fulfillment in our times.
2. The end of the paternalistic employer.
3. The advent of dismantling ageism.
4. Distribution-driven Armageddon for financial services.

Find the answers to questions such as: "How will you spend your time and make it meaningful?" and "How will you invest yourself?"
