Author and Chief Wealth Advisory Officer, Coventry Edwards-Pitt, CFA, CFP®, spoke to Financial Advisor IQ about how advisors can help their clients plan for aging. Advisors have the opportunity to help clients help themselves before cognitive decline takes away their ability to advocate for themselves.

“I feel like our work as advisors is really about family harmony and the quality of lives that our clients will have. And this whole issue of aging is so related to the level of family harmony that will exist or not.”
