eMoney Advisor (eMoney), a leading provider of technology solutions and services that help people talk about money, is thrilled to welcome back Abby Johnson, Chairman and CEO of Fidelity Investments, eMoney’s parent company, as a Summit keynote speaker for the second consecutive year. For the 2019 eMoney Summit, Johnson will share her perspectives in a session titled, “Mapping the Future of the Advice Industry” with Mike Durbin, Head of Fidelity Institutional, on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

The theme of this year’s Summit is “The Heart of Advice,” focusing on the core of what makes a truly exceptional client experience by marrying the emotional and psychological elements of behavioral finance with the scientific, data-driven aspects of wealth management. In coordination with this theme, the intimate discussion led by Johnson and Durbin will unpack the value of advice and how firms and advisors can align for growth.

“Abby Johnson is one of the most successful and respected leaders in financial services, and we’re honored to have her return to the eMoney Summit,” said eMoney CEO Ed O’Brien. “Her keynote session with Mike Durbin is a rare opportunity for attendees to learn directly from these industry trailblazers. I know both Abby and Mike believe in the power of planning and are strong advocates for eMoney. So, it will be an exciting experience for attendees to hear from them first-hand, not only about the future of the industry but also how eMoney plays an important role in it.”

The eMoney Summit, a three-day event beginning Monday, Oct. 14, through Wednesday, Oct. 16, is an opportunity for the industry’s top planning-led financial professionals to gather, explore and learn how they can take their client experience to the next level. More than 1,300 attendees are expected for this year’s Summit, which will take place at the newly opened Fairmont Hotel in Austin, Texas.

In addition to Johnson and Durbin’s session, attendees can explore a dynamic group of keynote presentations from renowned researchers and business leaders, including:

  • Angela Duckworth, founder and CEO of Character Lab, who will discuss her influential work on true grit—the tendency to pursue long-term goals with perseverance and passion. She will describe the predictive power of grit for performance in a variety of fascinating contexts.
  • Shawn Achor, New York Times best-selling author, who will share his research and formula, called “The Happiness Advantage,” to train the brain to be positive at work to fuel greater success.
