Fortress Fund Managers shares financial advice with HR professionals
Human Resource professionals heard more about the importance of financial security at the Fortress SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management) Meet and Greet in association with Stronghold Data Management held recently at the Radisson Aquatica.
Fortress Fund Managers, a leading independent provider of pension management and administration services in Barbados, emphasised that financial security was an essential part of life. Rene Delmas, Fortress’ pension director said, “We may live in uncertain times, but we don’t have to have a totally uncertain future. Planning for retirement is now an important option, not a luxury, which more and more Barbadians are pursuing.”
Mr. Delmas added that being on a financially secure path led to peace of mind. “When your employees have peace of mind they are better able to concentrate their time and energies fully and effectively to their jobs and careers.”
The pension director went on to emphasise to the audience of HR professionals how Fortress’ pension plans are designed to make life easier for them. “You are all are busy experts in your field. Pension plans are great to have but you want someone to manage them, to make life easier for you. That’s what Fortress does; we provide products and services tailored to your company’s needs as well as timely, regular reporting, and well-managed investments which are diversified geographically.”
Mr. Delmas explained that Fortress’ Caribbean Pension Fund allowed pension plan members to choose one of three investment options dependent on the number of years left till they need their pension and how well they tolerate risk.
Also addressing the Meet and Greet, which was held as part of the HRMAB Week of Activities, were Robert Garcia, director – global business, SHRM; and Michael Parris, director, Prism Services.
