RIIA provides members with the market’s best performing asset: Validated Knowledge.
RIIA gives you access to over ten years of client-focused experience with researchers and peers who belong to a thousand-strong network of clients, advisors, vendors, distributors and manufacturers.
Together, we are building the most objective, rigorous, comprehensive and tool-enabled body of knowledge for retirement income planning in the Fiduciary Age.
The most objective, defensible process that “minds the gaps” in the traditional planning processes
RIIA was founded as the “View Across the Silos℠” to create a neutral, Switzerland-like association that does not lobby and which has the mission to “Discover, Validate and Teach the New Realities of Retirement”.
Demonstrate to your clients that your retirement training makes you uniquely qualified to earn their business, to solve their retirement problems and justifies your associated fees.
