Andover, MA (Vocus) July 7, 2010
In an ongoing effort to help firms improve investor disclosure and realize significant savings by moving from paper to electronic delivery, NewRiver, Inc., today announced that the Company will moderate an interactive discussion at the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI)’s 2010 Operations and Technology Conference. Comprised of panelists from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Ameriprise, Prudential and Dechert LLP, the session titled Impact & Opportunities of New Summary Prospectus: Driver for E-Delivery will be held on July 14th from 1:15-2:15.
Summary prospectuses are now available for many of the funds that variable insurance products offer. These smaller documents provide simpler fund disclosure to policyholders and prospects but also require a rethinking of the entire prospectus delivery regimen ranging from legal to marketing to call centers. But what role does electronic delivery play in a world of smaller print invoices? In this session, the panel of experts will share their insights on how the implementation of summary prospectuses is progressing, some common issues including what’s working and what isn’t, and will discuss the evolving role of e-delivery for investor disclosure.
Moderated by Jeffrey Levering, Vice President, Corporate Development, NewRiver, other panelists include:
- Susan Nash, Associate Director, Division of Investment Management - U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
- Ruth Epstein, Partner, Dechert LLP
- Melissa M. Steiner, Director of Distributor Services and Product Management, Ameriprise
- David Collier, Director, Prudential
At the show (booth #15), executives from NewRiver will also be available to discuss how to cut your compliance document delivery costs in half, how to deliver the optimal client experience whether it’s via electronic or paper format, and how to satisfy 100% of a firms compliance obligations.
