Lonsec Research announces new Industry Panel members

Lonsec Research is excited to announce the inclusion of Challenger as a new member of the Lonsec Retire Industry Panel, joining existing members AB, BT, Invesco Australia, Investors Mutual Limited, State Street Global Advisers and Plato.

The purpose of the Industry Panel is to bring together the leading experts of the retirement industry to provide financial advisers with a leading source of insights to enhance retirement advice and solutions.

“The Industry Panel already includes some illustrious names, but with the inclusion of Challenger, financial advisers are now getting access to an even deeper and diverse source of ideas,” said Veronica Klaus, General Manager of Investment Consulting at Lonsec Research.
“We wanted to bring together the wisest heads we could find from the retirement industry, both in Australia and around the world. The aim is to provide a single source of expert analysis and insights on the key retirement issues facing investors, and Challenger will be a key voice given their experience and position in the market.”

The Industry Panel is an initiative of Lonsec Retire – a collaboration between Lonsec and global actuary Milliman, leveraging the combined financial intelligence and investment expertise of both organisations.

“More than ever, Lonsec Retire is focused on the practical applications of retirement insights and how financial advisers can use these to create implementable solutions,” said Ms Klaus. “This will be the major theme of our upcoming Retirement Symposium event in August.”

“The global presence and expertise offered by our partners provides financial advisers and other decision makers with a deeper understanding of the key trends and challenges relating to retirement. We have a panel of diverse yet equally outstanding partners who will continue to provide real value to the advice industry.”
