Also today, Dale Brown and his team are kicking off the Financial Services Institute's (FSI's) 2018 OneVoice conference.

Also on Wednesday, TD Ameritrade Institutional president Tom Nally and his team will kick off their giant 2018 national LINC (Learn Inspire Network Collaborate) conference for RIAs. The four-day event is being held at the Hyatt Regency Orlando and features as sponsors a veritable who's who of RIA-friendly vendors and asset managers big and small, including: Aberdeen Standard; BlackRock; Capital Group; DFA; First Trust; Northern Trust's FlexShares; Invesco's PowerShares; State Street Global Advisors; T. Rowe Price; Vanguard; WisdomTree; and a host of others.

On Thursday night in New York City, Frank Heavey and his Expect Miracles Foundation (Financial Services Against Cancer) team will host the fourth annual Expect Miracles in Manhattan gala. For a second year in a row, the sold out business cocktail event will be held at the Edison Ballroom in midtown. Margaret Flynn-Martin, managing director of Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, and John Pavese, managing director and head of relationship at Merrill Lynch, are co-chairs of the event.
