With pensions vanishing and Social Security in question, young Americans increasingly face daunting challenges when it comes to planning for retirement. Merrill Lynch is bringing together a panel of experts for a live video Webcast on Wednesday evening, March 9th from 9-10 p.m. ET / 6-7 p.m. PT to address the important topic of What Young Americans Need to Know About Retirement.
The Webcast will be moderated by award-winning journalist and former ABC News anchor Charles Gibson, and he will be joined by a panel of experts from academia, financial services and media. Their discussion will focus on the social, political and economic changes that are increasingly placing retirement planning squarely on the shoulders of individuals, as well as outline actionable strategies to help 20- and 30-somethings get a head start on investing in themselves and their futures. They will also talk about methods that parents and grandparents can pass down about wealth, values, and retirement planning strategies to the next generation.
This is the fourth part of a five-part series of retirement-focused Webcasts hosted by Merrill Lynch Wealth Management. Some of the experts on the panel include:
- Roland Fryer: The Robert M. Beren Professor of Economics, Harvard University
- John Pelletier: Director of the newly created Center for Financial Literacy at Champlain College
