US - Northern Trust Retirement Consulting (NTRC) - a subsidiary of Northern Trust Corporation - has launched a new web-based seminar series called Plan Sponsor Knowledge Network (PSKN) for its plan sponsors.
PSKN is a bimonthly series of webcasts, hosted by industry experts at the firm which aims to keep NTRC's clients aware of latest developments in the retirement industry.
Topics covered include changes to retirement plan regulations and updates on marketplace trends.
Attendees may also pose questions to the speaker either via the phone or text messaging through the online service.
Mindy Zatto, senior benefits consultant and principal at NTRC added: (PSKN) has been developed in response to requests that we are hearing from our clients - they need current retirement industry information, presented to them in a focused way that highlights the areas where they have choices or need to make decisions.
“It is critical that they have an avenue for asking questions and also for receiving more detailed one-on-one advice off-line from one of our benefits consultants. By Madhu Kalia
