The Georgetown Center for Retirement Initiatives (CRI) is hosting an exclusive, invitation-only two-day virtual Policy Innovation Forum featuring U.S. and international thought leaders. The CRI’s Annual Policy Innovation Forum is a premiere gathering where senior industry leaders, policymakers, and stakeholders discuss the key challenges of designing a retirement system focused on improving long-term outcomes to strengthen retirement security.

Because there is growing interest among both plan participants and plan sponsors in generating and protecting lifetime income, this year’s Policy Innovation Forum will focus on innovative new approaches being considered in the U.S. and other countries. The forum will explore: 1) ways to address major risks to retirement income, including longevity, timing, investment, and inflation; and 2) major system designs and delivery reforms, including institutional changes both public and private, to address these major risks and generate income for retirees.

With grant support from the Berggruen Institute, the CRI issued a Call for Papers related to the 2021 forum theme, and we look forward to exploring this research at the forum.

Unlike last year’s virtual forum, this year’s entire forum program agenda will be by invitation only and exclusive to CRI partners, sponsors, and special invited guests, so participation is limited. Invited guests have access to the full program agenda, participant list, research papers, and other information.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Shlomo Benartzi, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus and Co-founder of the Behavioral Decision Making Group, UCLA Anderson School of Management
  • Ali Khawar, Acting Assistant Secretary, Employee Benefits Security Administration, U.S. Department of Labor
  • Dr. Robert Merton, Distinguished Professor of Finance, Sloan School of Management, MIT
  • Bradley Schurman, Founder and CEO, the Super Age

and many more!
