Why should I attend the American Tax Planning Institute Enhanced Strategies Summit?

The American Tax Planning Institute (“ATPI”) is a national organization for experts and those who wish to be experts in advanced tax planning. Through the ATPI, we train and mentor top advisors around the country so that they can educate the general public.

We will equip our members to serve the affluent market’s needs, to preserve and protect their hard earned assets, and preserve their legacy. Our members reflect all areas of financial services – attorneys, CPAs, financial advisors, and more.

The co-founders of ATPI, Rao Garuda and Simon Singer, are life members of Top of the Table (TOT), were board members of the Forum 400, and they are in high demand nationally to share their wisdom and success in the industry. In the past 15 years, Simon has led three separate companies in product and was President/CEO of the Forum 400.

This is your opportunity to be mentored by giants in the industry without them demanding you split business – extremely unique in the financial industry.

The Enhanced Strategies Summit Will Cover:

During the Enhanced Strategies Summit (“Summit”), we will be covering three main topics: marketing, mentoring, and training. Below is a sampling of what you can expect at the Summit.



  • Tax Related News Letters
    Regular and continuous contact is one of the keys to a successful practice. Our “Tax Coach” produces weekly electronic newsletters of real-life situations written in a practical and understandable form for direct delivery to your clients and prospects via “done for you marketing” and can be used on your websites as well. In addition, for some members we include seminar presentations, white papers and other tools that can add value to your practice. Everything can be private labeled for you so there’s really not much for you to do and is included in some of our membership classifications.

    The InsMark Suite of Software is state-of-the-art and in our opinion far away the best software for playing what-if games and doing comparisons that our industry has never seen. There are many training videos to help the planner get comfortable in using the software and understanding its capability. In addition, the founder Bob Ritter has produced well over 100 blogs that not only explain the situation and provide a solution, but also give you real-world examples as to how to create a presentation that will be meaningful to your clients and produce revenue for you.
