A Message from the Director

Our Mission Has Never Been More Important
Connecting with Advisors, Investors. . . And Each Other

In this unprecedented time, the IMEA’s mission has never been more critical – to help inform and educate investors and advisors. That mission also extends to connecting you, our members, with each other to discuss the strategies and best practices in our industry.

We continue to gather and post content on IMEA’s Investor and Advisor Education Centers addressing not only the impact of Coronavirus on market volatility, but other important investment topics. We’ve seen traffic nearly double at both sites over the past few weeks. In fact, The Advisor Education Center Coronavirus Section was featured by Ignites on March 19, and was the lead mention in MFWire’s March 20 daily email. The Coronavirus section currently has 70 items from 24 firms, with additions every day. Please let me know if your firm has content you’d like to provide for either site.

In the coming weeks you will learn of opportunities to connect with peers and learn the latest about how firms are dealing with the current unprecedented situation. In the meantime, if there is anything you’d like feedback from your colleagues on, would like to bring to my attention, or want to discuss, I hope you will not hesitate to reach out.

I and the entire IMEA team continue to work on your behalf. I am confident that our proud industry will work together to help clients navigate this extraordinary time. Thank you for your ongoing support.

Best wishes,
