Arnerich Massena Announces the Next Learn Share Connect Event: Turning Opportunity Into Outcomes: Understanding how behavioral finance impacts committee processes

We’re excited to announce Arnerich Massena’s next Learn Share Connect event, featuring keynote speaker Stuart Ritter from T. Rowe Price. Turning Opportunity Into Outcomes: Understanding how behavioral finance impacts committee processes will be hosted the afternoon of April 29, 2015 at the Washington Athletic Club in Seattle, Washington.  

Keynote speaker Ritter is vice president of T. Rowe Price Investment Services, Inc. and a senior planner in their Financial Planning Services Group, designing, building, and implementing guidance and advice services. He has appeared on television and radio programs like ABC News and National Public Radio, and has been quoted by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Money Magazine. Mr. Ritter will discuss participant behavior, using interactive technology to delve into the unexpected ways outside influences affect people’s choices, and explore ways to improve plan sponsors’ influence and participants’ outcomes.

An all-star panel featuring Mimi Warner, an employee benefits attorney with Stoel Rives LLP; Chris Heimgartner, assistant general manager for Snohomish County Public Utilities District; and Ryan Cunningham, CAIA, advisor with Arnerich Massena, will also discuss behavioral finance and how it impacts committee best practices. The conference will be followed by hosted cocktails and dinner.

This mini-conference is part of Arnerich Massena’s Learn Share Connect series, events designed to help retirement plan sponsors and administrators keep up to date on industry trends and best practices.
