Retirement Professional Development Membership Monthly Webinar Series

Since 1995, I’ve spoken at and helped many national conferences plan their topics on retirement education, advice, income management, planning strategies, readiness and purposeful retirement. However, many professionals cannot attend these highly-valuable educational and networking events due to time or budget constraints.

Because it is more important than ever for CRC®s, CFP®s, CPAs and other professionals to deepen their retirement-specific knowledge, we now have a series of monthly, one (1) hour LIVE webinars that will bring top retirement planning experts to your desktop.

Upcoming Live Webinar Schedule See the complete list of upcoming topics and speakers here.

You’ll experience conference-level presentations at a fraction of the cost of attending in person, receive 10 tips per session on how to implement what you learn, and have an opportunity to get your questions answered directly by the expert. Attending these live webinars will fulfill 1 - 1.5 CRC® and/or 1 - 1.5 CFP® CE credits per session. Courses will be recorded and available in elearning format shortly after the live session.

Upcoming Professional Development Webinars

06/25/15 Live Webinar Event - “Pensionizing Your (Client’s) Nest Eggs”: What, How and Why? - Alexandra Macqueen

"Pensionizing Your (Client’s) Nest Eggs”: What, How and Why?

Thursday, June 25, 2015 12:00 - 1:00 PM EDT

By Alexandra Macqueen, CRC®
Co-author (with Dr. Moshe Milevsky) of 'Pensionize Your
Nest Egg: How to Use Product Allocation to Create
Guaranteed Income for Life' (Wiley 2015)

With the rapid decline of these traditional pensions over the past few decades, retirees must now create their own plans to ensure the savings they’ve accumulated for retirement last a lifetime.

One solution? “Pensionizing” a portion of your clients' nest egg -- by purchasing a “personal pension” that provides guaranteed income they can’t outlive.

In this session, attendees will discuss (a) the new risks that investors face as they approach and entire retirement, including longevity, inflation and sequence-of-returns risk, and (b) how retirees can combine financial and insurance products to create retirement income plans that meet their individual goals.

In particular, we will examine how the optimal product allocation for a retiree will depend on their preference for maximizing sustainable lifetime income, or maximizing a planned financial legacy.

In this session you will:

  1. Review the main risks that should be considered when creating retirement income plans.
  2. Explore how different types of financial products respond to the risks retirees face.
  3. Learn how “product allocation” can be used to mix-and-match financial and insurance products to create optimal retirement income plans in response to client goals.
  4. Discover, through the use of case studies, how “pensionizing” a fraction of a retiree’s nest egg impacts the sustainability of their lifetime income and their expected financial legacy.
