Voya Financial Inc (VOYA) on Sept. 6, 2016 announced the launch of Retirement University for Advisors™, an innovative professional development and practice management program for financial advisors who serve both personal and/or defined contribution clients.
Rooted in Voya Financial’s mission to be America’s Retirement Company™, “Retirement U” brings together resources to assist advisors looking to expand the retirement-focused guidance that their clients are seeking. In conjunction with the launch of “Retirement U,” Voya announced last month that Joseph M. Labella, CAIA, CIMA®, had been named Retirement Strategist. This new position was created in response to the growing needs faced by financial advisors to help them better address their clients’ retirement planning issues.
“We recognize that retirement is foundational to an advisors’ practice. With Retirement U, we believe that advisors will be able to add demonstrable value in the retirement process and differentiate themselves from their competition,” said Jake Tuzza, managing director and head of intermediary distribution. “Advisors working with personal retirement clients have specific challenges, not the least of which includes managing their practices while also trying to help clients get ready to retire. ‘Retirement U’ addresses these specific concerns and needs in the most practical, most-consumable way possible.”
“Retirement U” brings together practice management and professional development for advisors through a dedicated web experience – including interactive learning modules – and other resources, such as live seminars that provide CE credits.
