What Are Your Colleagues Saying About Our Past Events?

The FRA’s Annual Managed Accounts & UMA Summit just continues to be even more relevant each year due to the changing landscape of the Wealth Management Industry. Since its inception a decade ago the FRA Summit has documented the Financial Industry as it has progressively moved from product offerings to comprehensive wealth solutions and no venue brings those changes and opportunities to the core of this Industry, with Industry experts, like the FRA does. This year’s agenda and speakers are some of the most relevant current topics presented by Industry leaders and panel participants that are changing our landscape daily.
