Retirement Management JournalSM
Designed to promote research, scholarship, and innovative thinking on retirement management topics.
The Retirement Management JournalSM
(RMJSM) is a
peer-reviewed publication that benefits from RIIA's
"View Across the Silos" to centralize retirement income and retirement management articles. Currently these articles are published in
"silo-specific" publications. This makes them hard to find and little read by the retirement-focused Financial Advisors who are most in
need of the thinking and practice sharing.
RMJSM articles and papers contribute to broadening and deepening
the industry's body of knowledge for retirement income and retirement management.
Back issues of the RMJSM
are currently available.
You can access the back issues of the RMJ here.
The RMJSM will accept papers for submission with the goal of making the magazine thought provoking, stimulating, practical, inspirational and sometimes controversial.

In addition, the RMJSM serves as required reading for those people who have achieved the
RMASM advanced designation to earn continuing education credits.

Call for Papers
The editor of the Retirement Management Journal is now soliciting papers for the Spring
"practitioner peer review committee" issue. The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2012. Accepted papers will be published in the Spring 2013 issue and shared at the RIIA Spring Conference hosted by Morningstar. In addition, the papers will be reviewed for the potential of winning the Practitioner Thought Leadership Award which is also presented at RIIA's Spring Conference.
The editorial focus is: What are practitioners doing to build and manage retirement income portfolios in light of global economic weakness, the zero-interest rate policy and central bank stimulus environment?
What sort of risk management strategies and techniques are advisors using to produce retirement income?
Are advisors suggesting that clients delay taking Social Security?
Are they suggesting that clients work longer?
Are they suggesting different drawdown strategies?
In this Spring issue, our goal is to present what is viewed Across the Silos of the industry as current best practices and offer fodder for study groups and ongoing discussions in 2013.
firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to submit your paper.
