Windsor, CT, February 15, 2006 — Paced by leading speakers on the economy and consumers, the Retirement Industry Conference, sponsored by LIMRA, LOMA, and the Society of Actuaries to be held April 5-7, 2006, will take close aim at issues of retirement income, retirement plans, and annuities.
"Creating a retirement income stream is emerging as one of the critical financial issues of the 21st Century," said Robert A. Kerzner, president and CEO of LIMRA International, who will deliver opening remarks at the conference. "This conference will deliver the facts and ideas the industry needs to meet the retirement income challenge for the new generation of retirees."
Formerly the Annuity and Pension Conferences and the Retirement Symposium, the new conference is an integrated approach to the major issues of the retirement industry. It immediately follows the Life Insurance Conference, sponsored by the same organizations and the ACLI, April 3-5.
Keynote speakers include Dr. Robert Geneski, a leading interest rate forecaster and investment advisor with an optimistic view of the economy, and Marilyn Moats Kennedy, founder and managing partner of Career Strategies, who will provide insights on the experiences, interests, and values of investors that are closely tied with age and generational characteristics.
