As part of its recently launched Voya Retirement University for Advisors program, Voya Investment Management is
partnering with The American College of Financial Services to provide financial
advisers with educational programs and resources to help them become better
equipped to have retirement conversations with their clients.
The American College of Financial Services is a nonprofit
educational institution devoted to financial services. The college serves as a business
partner and training specialist supporting banks, brokerage firms, insurance
companies and others.
Jake Tuzza, managing director and head of intermediary distribution
at Voya Investment Management, says the educational services provided via the partnership
will help advisers address the latest trends in interest rates, market risks,
rising health care costs and changes associated with social safety nets.
“Advisers need access to informed and progressive ideas to
truly differentiate themselves and demonstrate their value,” he notes. “We want
to make sure we're cultivating those best ideas and best practices as well as
making them readily available to advisers.”
In addition to providing access to webinars, seminars and
white papers, the partnership will offer a specific designation titled
Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP) to help advisers differentiate
themselves in the retirement income space.
“The RICP designation focuses on relevant and practical
content that helps advisers hone their skills in the retirement income planning
process,” Tuzza concludes. “As part of this partnership, Voya is sponsoring a
unique offer in which advisors can preview the type of education they will
receive by enrolling in the RICP designation.”
