There is perhaps no greater financial issue facing an entire generation of Americans than the issue of creating durable, inflation-adjusted retirement income that can last 30 years or more in retirement. RIIA was founded by 29 institutional members in 2006 to provide a view across the business silos in order to shape the future of the retirement industry to better serve the millions of Americans facing retirement income security challenges.
The founding members felt that existing associations were generally lobbying-focused, and too frequently represented only the interests of a narrow segment, product or silo of the industry. They felt that creating RIIA and belonging to RIIA were necessary action steps to discover the new realities, develop innovative solutions, and deliver better advisory processes within the realm of retirement management and retirement income.
RIIA membership demonstrates to clients and business partners your serious focus on the business of retirement management and retirement income. RIIA has both institutional (companies) members as well as individual (advisors) members with membership exceeding 1,000 members and growing rapidly.
