We’re extending the deadline to this Wednesday for nominations for the Innovation in Retirement Income Products award. The winner of the award, which Retirement Income Journal is sponsoring on behalf of the Retirement Income Industry Association, will be announced at RIIA’s annual meeting in Austin, Texas, on October 7.
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 actuarial wizardry, or its value proposition, or perhaps even its sheer simplicity.
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.
Wednesday, September 11, is the new 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 prestigious 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.
