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.
