Big Issues, Big Achievements, Big Fun at DAC Acuity 2020

The 2020s are starting out in tumultuous fashion. The economic impact of ongoing concerns like climate change, global pandemics, global political risks and local strike actions of various kinds all have impact on financial decision-making. Issues that are much different than decades past require bold thought and bright insights.  For these reasons, Canada’s premiere advisors won’t want to miss DAC Acuity 2020, October 28-30 in Niagara Falls. Early registration discounts end February 15.

You will be especially interested in coming back again and again as we build out an impressive speaker roster to the themes that permeate the deep and rich educational offerings at DAC Acuity 2020.  The main theme – Acuity – will challenge delegates to Canada’s longest running and premiere conference for tax, bookkeeping and financial advisors to sharpen their strategic thought process and precise technical skills.    

The hard question is this:  are professionals having the conversations that are required to prepare  clients for Black Swan events that could dramatically change balance sheet valuations for families and businesses alike?   Listen closely as a multi-stakeholder professional network thinks deeply about the trust and responsibility they hold and how to give enough thought to the impact the issues of the day will have.

Here are some of the topics we are working on for you, with outstanding speakers and sponsor partners:

  • Acuity: Soaring Higher with Sharp, Keen Thought
  • Bolder Thinking: Getting Wealth Management Right
  • The Burden of Wealth: Estate Planning with Trusts
  • Trends in Retirement Planning: Use of Life Insurance in a Retirement Strategy
  • Transformational Practices: Reworking Value Propositions and Fee Structures in the Digital Age
  • Bright Insights:Investing in an Age of Climate Change
