April 25 Chapter Luncheon – Your Silicon Valley Clients are Getting a Divorce, Now What?

April 25, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Your Silicon Valley Clients are Getting a Divorce, Now What?

In the United States, the divorce rate is 40% to 50%.  For those who work in the financial services field, it is likely that you have clients who divorced or are in the process of divorcing.  This presents a whole host of challenges for the client and his/her advisor.  This presentation will explore the impact of the 2017 Tax Reform Act, an overview of the divorce finance analysis process, the unique Silicon Valley asset division categories, and sample case study applications.
