Commonwealth Financial Network launched "RetireReady," a customizable participant education program for independent advisors. The program will help advisors to add value to retirement planning advising for sponsor clients.

The program, introduced Thursday, includes presentations, articles and worksheets on important topics in the retirement planning area, among others. The offerings are grouped into three key sections - encouraging enrollment, education about savings and investing and preparing participants for retiring.

"For advisors targeting the plan sponsor market, RetireReady presents them with the means to truly set themselves apart in the industry," said Paul Mahan, Commonwealth's director of retirement consulting services in a press release.

 "The robust library of out-of-the-box resources helps advisors showcase their expertise-and helps plan sponsors and participants by driving employee engagement and plan participation."

RetireReady is the latest addition to a number of marketing programs Commonwealth has developed.

Commonwealth Financial Network is the nation's largest privately owned broker/dealer and supports more than 1400 independent registered representatives nationwide.
