Are You Providing Pro Bono Financial Advice? [Voting Poll and Survey]

Is Less or More Planned in 2019?

[By Staff Reporters]

Join Our Mailing List 

It is well known that the flash crash of 2008-09, and the continuing hangover from the recent recession, is a drag on the income of many financial advisors; especially those who derive their salary from some percentage of assets under management. But, the markets have bounced back in the last decade to near all time highs, in 2019!

Business Models and Definitional Haze  

Regardless of definitional haze, it seems that commissioned salesman, stock-brokers, financial planners, insurance agents and financial advisors of all stripes – and business models –  have been economically hurt as the nation’s unemployment rate hovers at just under ten percent.

No One Immune

Broker-Dealers [BDs] and Registered Investment Advisors [RIA] are not immune; as this voting poll was first launched in 2011.

Are You Providing “Pro Bono” Financial Advice in 2019?

Conclusion

And so, as a financial professional, do you plan on providing less or more pro bono work in 2011?

Are You Providing Pro Bono Medical Care? [A Voting Poll and Survey]

Is Less or More Planned in 2019?

[By Staff Reporters]

Join Our Mailing List 

A survey in 2011 suggested that more than 40% of the country’s doctors are doing less pro-bono work due to managed care, and the resulting decrease in personal income.  Today, some pundits wonder if the exacerbated cause was the ACA?

AAFP Intervenes

To combat this unintended economic phenomenon today, the organization Volunteers in Healthcare – now with the American Academy of Family Physicians – offers a free information patient record system to track the medical care given to the uninsured. The system allows physicians to track and store information on patients, visits, providers, clinics, referrals and more.  It is guide-driven with sample reports that can be reconstituted to provide summary statistics on patients and providers.

Medscape Compensation Report

By Vicki Rackner MD

A 2015  Medscape Compensation Report sheds light on physicians’ earning potential.

Here are some key findings from a survey of 20,000 physicians in 26 specialties:

  • Orthopedists ($421,000) and cardiologists ($376,000) are still the top earners among physicians.
  • Physicians in private practice earn significantly more ($329,000 for specialists) than do employed physicians ($258,000 for specialists), despite the trend toward employment.
  • Male physicians earn more ($284,000) than their female counterparts ($215,000).
  • North Dakota and Alaska ($330,000) are the top-paying states for physicians, while Rhode Island ($217,000) and Maryland ($237,000) are the lowest-paying.
  • 9% of physicians have concierge or cash-only practices, the same percentage as last year, while ACO participation continues to grow.
