Chief Executive Officer
I have followed EBnet from its inception in 2012. I am astounded by its significant growth and relevance in the Retirement Fund Industry. The news and information provided on a daily basis is invaluable for everyone that takes a keen interest in this dynamic industry.
Well done EBnet! Wishing you continued strength.
At Luthuli Capital, we are passionate about supporting educational platforms that help educate ordinary South Africans in financial wellness. We greatly support EBnet in that it plays a major role in educating retirement fund Principal Officers, Trustees and members about retirement matters spanning all the different fields like investments, legal, benefit structuring, healthcare, personal financial planning and many more.
I find the EBnet website and weekly industry newsletters extremely informative. The platform brings together PO’s and Trustees of retirement funds with the range of service providers and industry bodies where information is shared in a neutral environment. EBnet also provides excellent branding and advertising value to service providers, especially ones that are lesser known in the industry to showcase their talent on a platform seen by the entire retirement industry.
EBnet has taken the market by storm and as a knowledge portal, has become an extremely popular destination. As an industry professional and service provider, the exposure it gives Global Investment Reporting to the market has been extremely valuable. EBnet is the ideal platform to connect retirement funds and service providers.
I find the new EBnet website very user friendly and it has become my ‘go-to’ site for researching publications and topics. The weekly newsletters and conference updates certainly keep me up to date, especially in the light with so much happening in our world today. I would recommend that all EB and Rem professionals sign up – right now.
As a professional in the financial services industry, it is vital to keep up with trends and legislation in the regulatory environment. I subscribed to EBnet’s email service 4 months ago and was very impressed with the content that EBnet produced. So much so, that I used the organisation as a case study for a project that I was working on. Not only do they tick 95% of the boxes for implementing a well considered content strategy, the quality of the content is exceptional-always relevant, timeous and leading edge. When I presented the project to the London based agency, EBnet was highly rated by the team as well. If you are working in the employee benefits or financial services arena, then you should not be without a subscription to the EBnet newsletters.
The EBnet portal provides up to date information on the legislative changes in the retirement fund industry as well as quick links to the related websites. The weekly newsletter is a welcome overview of what is happening in the industry with latest views and articles from various sources. A useful practical site for anybody who addresses employee benefits in any way or form.
