MainStay Launches Retirement Institute to Assist Plan Advisers and Sponsors
NEW YORK, NY, February 28, 2017 -- MainStay Investments announced the launch of MainStay's Retirement Institute created to assist plan advisers and plan sponsors as they navigate today's evolving governance landscape. The Retirement Institute's various initiatives seek to provide expert coverage of the industry's most impactful issues and deliver important information to plan advisers and sponsors.
As part of MainStay's Retirement Institute efforts, the team has partnered with Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) experts at Groom Law Group to understand trends in ERISA litigation. The team has also engaged with Don Trone, author, founder of 3Ethos and leading authority on governance, to leverage the concept of behavioral and inspirational governance (BIG) to help the defined contribution community understand leadership practices.
Current programs available through MainStay's Retirement Institute include:
Spearheading these efforts is Jonathan Blaze, national sales director for retirement plans at MainStay, who frequently speaks on fiduciary best practices. According to Blaze, "Money managers have an important part to play in helping make reliable, practical information available to the retirement plan community to assist in creating a culture of inspired governance. With our Retirement Institute, MainStay has made a commitment to continually provide timely and relevant insights to the plan sponsor and defined contribution investment only (DCIO) communities. We aim to provide actionable resources for advisers to use as they assist their plan sponsor clients and prospects to help them navigate the governance landscape."
