Sun Life speakers at the Toronto Summit

We are well represented at the Toronto Summit conference with two speakers: Mark Rolnick, Product Director, Pharmaceutical Benefits, Group Benefits, and Lori Landry, Chief Marketing Officer and Head of Institutional Business, SLGI.

Mark will be exploring The Journey to Successful Drug Plan Changes – A Sponsor’s Perspective.  Drug plan sustainability is a challenge facing many plan sponsors today.  Hear from plan sponsors who successfully changed their drug plans to ensure sustainability for their plan members.  Carol Craig from TELUS Communications and Laurie Maye from Shaw Communications will be joining Mark to speak about the changes they made and the tools they used to ensure a smooth transition.

Lori will present on the Newest De-accumulation Strategies.  With the baby boomers retiring, the DC industry is shifting its focus from accumulation to the de-accumulation stage.  What emerging investment products and solutions might help get members through retirement, not just to retirement?
