Jason recently returned from an amazing conference in Orlando at which he learned how technology is shaping the future of the financial planning industry.

Jason Dobrzynski has qualified for the 2018 Waddell & Reed Crest Award, which is among the highest honors for financial advisors affiliated with the company. This year's conference was held on July 11th-15th in Park City, Utah.

Symbolizing performance excellence, the award is bestowed to the most productive financial advisors affiliated with the firm based on an analysis of investment, insurance and financial planning sales. This year, 127 of Waddell & Reed's national network of 1260 financial advisors qualified for the Crest Award. This is the first time that Jason has received this major recognition.

At this year's conference, Jason also had the honor of being one of four advisors on a panel discussion. He shared how his team is differentiating itself not only within the firm, but also in the industry, with its client-centered approach to planning. In 2017, the team changed its name to The Corsalus Group, which means “heart, mind, and well-being.” Our focus is on connecting the things that people are most passionate about to their financial goals through the financial planning process.
