Young professionals in the wealth management industry have been invited to enter the new IFSA/Deloitte Future Leaders Award.

The award is open to employees of IFSA’s 85 member companies and asks entrants to submit innovative 2,500-4,500 papers on one of three topics: • how can the industry simplify life insurance; • how can the industry overcome significant inefficiencies, and; • what initiatives can be undertaken to make retirement income streams more attractive to retirees? All three topics are top of IFSA’s agenda for 2006, Richard Gilbert, IFSA chief said. “We hope to get ideas out of this and we want to identify talent in the industry. We also want this program to be a must on anybody’s CV,” he said. Finalists will be given the opportunity to present their papers to IFSA members at Key Issues Lunches and will also receive complementary registrations to the annual IFSA conference in 2007. The IFSA board will select a winner and Deloitte will award the overall winner an expenses paid study tour. Entries close on April 14, 2006.
