"Ethics of Working from Home"

2020 threw us into the world of remote working and we plunged quickly into an entirely new set of working circumstances, new ways of communicating, new ways of transferring files and new ways of just about everything. In the chaos, we had no time to consider the potential ethical landmines. It seems that “remote” (“WFH”) will be the new normal. This session will give an opportunity to reflect on some of potential ethical problems and an opportunity to see how our colleagues are finding solutions.

Richard Bell, Planning Capital Management
Rick is President and Founder of Planning Capital Management Corporation. Drawing from his experience as a Financial Advisor he developed the organization specifically to provide no boundary wealth management strategies to meet its client goals. Rick’s experience came from working with a National Brokerage firm where he provided investment strategies and asset management solutions to high-net-worth private clients, institutions and non-profit foundations.

Matt Gaughan, Edward Jones
Upon graduating from Villanova Law School (cum laude) in 2003, Matt practiced law for more than a decade at a prominent Philadelphia law firm concentrating in the area of class action litigation. While he enjoyed meeting with clients and helping them through difficult challenges, travel and being away from my family for long periods while working on cases took their toll. After losing his father at a young age to pancreatic cancer, Matt decided it was important that he transition to a career that allowed him to remain close to his family while serving his community. Because he is passionate about helping others and developing meaningful relationships, working as an Edward Jones financial advisor has given him a strong sense of purpose. Matt's practice is focused on relationships with executives, business owners and other professionals who are serious, long-term investors. Matt provides complete wealth strategies in partnership with his clients' estate attorneys and tax professionals.
