So... Will I Ever Be Able to Retire? And Other Important Financial Questions That We All Need To Consider

It's the question that can strike fear into the hearts of Baby Boomers and Gen-Xers alike. Attend an in-depth and informative financial planning seminar that will help you answer the above question, as well as address other important financial considerations NYWIFT members need to keep in mind. This presentation is geared towards members who have been in the work force for over 10 years and are actively saving for their future…. yet aren’t sure where they stand.

Whether you are a business owner expecting to transition out of your practice in the near future, or a member who has been working in entertainment for years, this presentation is for you. MetLife Certified Financial Planners Gail Linn and William Fischer will inform you about the key concepts you need to consider when it comes to saving for retirement, protection strategies, business transition, estate planning and more. They will clarify some of the more confusing financial issues we face every day and help you focus your efforts on your goals. 

Light Refreshments will be served.


William Fischer
, CFP, is a MetLife Financial Services Representative whose business philosophy and mission is to help individuals develop financial strategies, then achieve those strategies using products designed to meet their needs. His process never makes clients feel embarrassed about their financial knowledge. It focuses instead on analyzing their current situation, identifying where they want to be, then informing them on the products and services available to achieve their goals. Once a client’s strategy is established, his job shifts into a service oriented role. Since financial strategy is fluid, he is in regular contact to make sure the plan set in motion yesterday, is still working effectively today. When adjustments are necessary, he presents, discusses and implements any changes, creating a road map to take clients where they want to be.
