Election 2020: Proactive Tax and Investment Strategies for Law Firm Partners

New York, NY

Event Details

Presenters will include partner, Bruce Hyde, CPA, MS, wealth advisor, Fred Behrens, CFP® and wealth advisor, Anthony Rosetti, CFA®.  Round Table Wealth Management is a New York based independent registered investment advisory firm founded twenty years ago and now manage in excess of $1.1 billion of assets.

2020 has been an unprecedented year with the impact of COVID-19 and what is expected to be a highly contentious presidential election.  Given these circumstances we believe there are numerous strategies that can be implemented to help navigate short-term market volatility as well as plan for long-term potential tax policy changes if a Biden administration is to take over.

Our firm has a focus on working with partners at law firms.  We understand the issues you face and your need for an advisor who is experienced to handle all aspects of your financial life, from investment management to tax efficiency and estate planning.  We are independently owned and have no obligation to a large public company.  Our relationships are transparent, and we have always done our best to be objective in our advice.


  • Review of Vice President Biden’s Tax Policy Proposals
  • Answers to questions you should consider before year end, including:
    • Should I harvest gains to capture a rate advantage?
    • Can a ROTH conversion help lower future taxes?
    • Why estate and income tax planning should take place TODAY and not in December?
    • Are there any dangers in gifting low basis property?
    • Is it wise to incur 40% gift tax versus a future estate tax?
    • Will step-up in basis at death really be removed from the tax code?
  • Investment Strategies and Portfolio Positioning



Please feel free to reach out with any questions about joining the webinar. If you are unable to attend on Tuesday, October 20th, please let us know and we will send a replay of the presentation.
