IRIC Adds Jeff Eng to Retirement Plan Advisers


The Institutional Retirement Income Council (IRIC) has appointed Jeff Eng, director of retirement income solutions at Russell Investments, to its group of retirement plan advisers.




Eng has more than 11 years of experience in the defined contribution (DC) industry and, in particular, expertise in guaranteed DC plan retirement income solutions.

At Russell Investments, Eng is responsible for client education and advice on institutional retirement income solutions in the U.S. He joined Russell from AllianceBernstein, where he was responsible for product development and strategic relationship management for Secure Retirement Strategies, AllianceBernstein’s multi-manager, multi-insurer guaranteed income solution.

Eng’s appointment strengthens the advisory group’s efforts to assist plan sponsors with retirement income solutions. “We are very pleased and honored to have Jeff join the IRIC team and look forward to his many contributions,” said Martin Schmidt, who oversees the organization’s board of advisers. “Jeff brings a wealth of knowledge and unique experience in retirement plan solutions, and his addition comes at a time when a growing number of plan sponsors are looking at ways to provide their employees with greater retirement security.” 

Eng is a graduate of Columbia University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He holds FINRA Series 6 and 63 licenses, is a certified Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor and a CFA Level III candidate.

The IRIC is a nonprofit research group for the institutional retirement industry.
