The RMA designation, created by the Retirement Income Industry Association (RIIA®), is a rigorous educational and ethics training that focuses on building custom retirement income plans to mitigate risks and to master the retirement planning advisory process. You can expect RMA advisors to explain the process, the strategies and the options more effectively to clients who are preparing for and living in retirement.
The RIIA knowledge base enables a diverse constituency of financial advisors to prepare for counseling their clients on comprehensive retirement topics and how to generate retirement income as certified RMAs. RMA advisors recertify annually to maintain their approved designation.
Clients of RMA Advisors benefit from the RIIA’s unique perspective, “The View Across The SilosSM”, because RIIA’s founders started the association and the designation as retirement clients themselves. They first “walked the path of the client” rather than looking through the lens of an industry provider.
