easy to understand, educational and personalized for each member.
Industrial Alliance has first innovated with the new look of the statement.
"Research shows that members get more out of information presented visually

clearly makes it easier to understand, as members can see at a glance where
they are with their savings and how close they are to achieving their
retirement objectives," said Renée Laflamme, Vice-President, Group Savings
Industrial Alliance has also innovated in terms of financial education and
planning. Personalized messages, solutions and tips have been added to the new
statement to enable members to learn more about issues related to retirement

encourages members' commitment toward their retirement plan. For that reason,
we've strived to innovate throughout the process of creating our new
retirement savings statement," added Ms. Laflamme.
This initiative shows once again that clients are at the heart of Industrial
Alliance's concerns, and innovation, accessibility and service at the core of
