Pensions the Focus of Third Annual Fortress Investment Forum
Barbadians interested in securing their financial futures can take advantage of the third annual Fortress Investment Forum, which this year features a round table discussion entitled: “Your retirement isn’t what it used to be: What we all need to know now about NIS and pension savings.”
The event which is absolutely free to members of the public will be held on Saturday 10th November 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the Errol Barrow Centre for Creative Imagination, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, St. Michael.
Guest panellists weighing in on what promises to be very productive discussion on NIS and pension issues will include Dr. Justin Robinson, Chairman of the National Insurance Scheme; Professor Frank Alleyne, Chairman of the Financial Services Commission, and Mr. Charles Herbert, Consulting Actuary, Eckler Ltd.
Rene Delmas, pension director with Fortress Fund Managers Limited, said the focus of this year’s forum should be of interest to Barbadians from all walks of life, including professionals in the financial sector, students, and regular working individuals:
“The issue of NIS and pensions has not been static, and it is important for persons to keep abreast of changes and developments affecting their financial future. This forum is meant to give our clients, as well as the wider public, a clearer understanding of what they can expect at retirement and how they can plan effectively for greater security; and certainly the calibre of professionals on the panel will make for a very lively and productive discussion.”
As always, Fortress’ knowledgeable team will be in attendance to provide updates on the investment environment, answer questions and report on the performance and outlook for the range of Fortress funds.
