Zero Alpha Group says it will provide advanced Kitces Education content to the nearly 200 financial advisors with its eight member firms as part of a new initiative with Kitces.com.
With the deal, ZAG — which supports firms with more than $23 billion in combined client assets — will be able to offer its member advisors content including the popular Nerd’s Eye View blog, Kitces on-demand webinars and original Kitces Research white papers for their annual CFP, CPA, Enrolled Agent and other professional designation continuing education needs.
“The disruption of the coronavirus pandemic, and the concomitant shift to online education, has led to a rapid increase in demand for Kitces.com advanced educational content, with our Members Section up more than 20% in the first half of 2020, and our inquiries for webinar engagements up more than 100%,” said Michael Kitces, Kitces.com publisher, in a statement.
The Kitces Education team will also provide exclusive livestream webinars on advanced financial planning topics to ZAG advisors.
“With the coronavirus pandemic disrupting ZAG’s exclusive in-person advisor forums and other traditional advisor educational opportunities ZAG has been heavily engaged in finding educational content that has the depth and quality necessary to educate leading wealth management firms,” according to Katie Cullen, CEO and executive director of ZAG.
