new to riia, start here

Welcome to RIIA

RIIA® will mark its 10th anniversary in 2015 in the same spirit that animated us in 2005, with unique events that reflect our “View Across the Silos”℠ positioning to help clients achieve better retirement outcomes.   

As we reach this important milestone, I am pleased that RIIA’s client-centric approach has been validated by the increasing adoption of our principles, the differentiation they provide to member companies and advisors, and improved client outcomes through the financial crisis.

Over the last ten years, RIIA’s leadership team, along with thought-leaders at companies, advisors and academia, have contributed to our unique Body of Knowledge, which is the basis of the RMA® curriculum.  The core conceptual signposts of “The Client Diagnostic Kit”SM (including “Measures of Fundedness”SM and “The Household Balance Sheet View”SM) and “The Retirement Allocations”SM underscore our client-centric approach.  “The RMA® Toolbox”SM  and the “RMA® Practice Management” SM  signposts reflect our commitment to comprehensive implementation and helping advisors leverage RIIA principles to build their businesses.

As we look forward, our anniversary provides an opportunity to bring members and non-members together in new ways to discuss and build on RIIA’s body of knowledge.

In the Spring of 2015, as the first of several anniversary events that will be announced over time, we will launch our first RIIA Advisor Forum, a week-long event that integrates our traditional Conference Programs with the RMA Boot Camps.  The Advisor Forum will offer attendees the opportunity to audit class presentations, deliver guest speaker presentations, attend break-out seminars and join Award presentations as well as small group dinners.  This event, and the others like it later in the year, are by invitation only.
