Nominate Your Favorite Income Product

RIJ is sponsoring an award to be given by the Retirement Income Industry Association this fall. Send us your nominees for the "most innovative income product" by September 6.

Retirement Income Journal needs to leverage your expertise and good judgment. This year, for the first time, we’re sponsoring a Retirement Income Industry Association Award. The category: Innovation in Retirement Income Products. 

As a member of the broadly-defined retirement income industry, you probably know of a product, introduced in the last 12 to 18 months, that has distinguished itself from the others—either in its financial engineering, actuarial wizardry or ability to create value in a difficult economic climate.

We’re looking, ideally, for products that help people turn savings into income or that mitigate an important retirement risk. Potential nominees can be insurance products, investment products or hybrid products. But they shouldn’t be information technology or software products. 

Friday, September 6, is the deadline for submitting specific products as nominations. E-mail your suggestions to [email protected]. To add weight to your nomination, tell us why you believe the product deserves to win this first-time annual award.

In addition to the winner of the award, there will be two runner-ups. So the product you nominate has three chances to win.

Note: Contrary to popular belief, Retirement Income Journal and the Retirement Income Industry Association are not linked as businesses. They merely have similar names and similar interests, and have audiences and constituencies that overlap.
