Welcome to the Intention.ly & Friends Book Club!

We’re bringing together some of the most respected visionaries in behavioral finance, fintech, financial planning and wealth management to discuss the books making a major impact on our industry.

Engage with the authors themselves, as well as a network of peers and industry leaders eager to learn, challenge each other’s thinking, and apply new perspectives to life and work.

We’ll meet virtually on the second Wednesday of every month, from 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET. There’s no need to read each month’s book ahead of time; you can still participate in an engaging and valuable conversation.

Upcoming Books:

Brian Portnoy: The Geometry of Wealth

Wednesday, June 14, 3-4 PM ET
