SOME sixteen full-time financial sales advisors attached to AcornLife, from over counties Monaghan, Louth, Meath, Cavan Westmeath and North Dublin, who between them handle thousands of life and pension investments are planning to attend the company’s major annual conference in Vancouver, Canada, from June 10th to 17th next.
The sixteen-strong sales’ team is based at the AcornLife company’s regional office at Moynalty.
For every sales advisor in the region the pinnacle to be achieved each year is the qualification for the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT).
The prestigious gathering of likeminded men and women is on an annual basis at conference venues throughout the USA and Canada, and the gathering represents the top 1 per cent of financial advisors globally.
It emerged however this week that the number of young workers contributing to a pension has decreased rapidly over six years.
Only 36% of workers aged between 25 and 34 years of age had pension coverage in 2015, compared to just under half (49%) in 2009.
It is claimed that only 14% of workers aged between 20 and 24 years old have pension coverage.
The figures published by the Central Statistics Office were the first official records on pension figures in six years.
Meanwhile, for all the annual qualifiers in the northeast region qualifying for Acorn Million Dollar Round Table, it is understood each advisor can network with successful advisors globally to seek out new initiatives and upskill in the best financial advice that they can offer clients.
A spokesman said: “This conference gives each advisor the opportunity to mingle with the most elite business entrepreneurs and a gathering of such talent is unrivalled in the world of business.”
