Wescott Financial Advisory Group Founder and CEO Grant Rawdin to Speak at MarketCounsel Summit

PHILADELPHIA, PA, December 8, 2014 – Wescott Financial Advisory Group, an SEC-registered wealth management firm serving high-net-worth individuals and institutions, is pleased to announce that Founder and CEO, Grant Rawdin, J.D., CFP®, will speak at the highly regarded MarketCounsel Summit December 10, 2014, in Las Vegas, NV discussing what it takes to ascend to the top of the industry rankings.

The program, entitled “What Are the Top Advisors Planning to Stay on Top?”, will explore successful practice management strategies and how to grow a financial advisory practice amid a hyper-competitive and fragmented marketplace.  The program is part of an extensive agenda produced by MarketCounsel, a leading business and regulatory compliance consultancy that has made the Summit one of the marquee events in the securities industry.   

“I am delighted to have been selected to speak at MarketCounsel Summit,” says Rawdin.  “The event has quickly become one of the top gatherings of the industry’s thought leaders and consistently generates thoughtful discussions about industry best practices that makes the event a destination for the best and brightest minds in the advisory business.  I look forward to a robust discussion with other colleagues.”

Considered one of the few elite conferences in the industry, the Summit features general sessions and
interactive workshops that run morning 'til night, over three days in the desert. The agenda is stacked with well-orchestrated extracurricular events that provide for unmatched opportunities to “continue the conversation” among advisors, speakers and the industry's top service providers, including a can't-miss opening reception and a live auction to benefit the MarketCounsel Foundation.

Rawdin’s panel occurs Wednesday, December 10, at 3:30 p.m. PST.  He will be joined on the panel by industry veterans Steve Lockshin and Brent Brodeski and moderated by Sterling Shea, Managing Director and Head of Advisor Programs at Barron's.
