EIOC-203: The Unified Managed Household And What it Means to the Financial Advisory Business Technology is evolving quickly to keep up with the demand for comprehensive advice.

This may involve applying overlay technologies that are capable of coordinating all accounts, regardless of where assets are held. The technology chosen is especially critical in the distribution phase, when clients are dependent on a predictable stream of income. This class explores these technologies and how they will continue to evolve. Estimated time to complete, with test: 45 minutes
