Edward O’Connor, Principal Partner and Founder of Princeton Financial Consultants LLC, announced today that he has joined the Government Relations Committee (GAC) of the American Retirement Association. The organization’s GAC represents its members in communications with the United States Executive Branch, Congress and government agencies in shaping the retirement industry and protecting the interests of its members.
After a successful career at leading wealth managers, with a focus on retirement and financial wellness, Ed launched Princeton Financial Consultants in 2020. Previously, he served as Managing Director for Morgan Stanley Wealth Management, where he managed the firm’s response to the Department of Labor’s fiduciary rule. He is a non-voting member of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Private Pensions Committee and is also a spokesman for the retirement plan industry, especially in the promotion of financial wellness.
Brian Graff, Chief Executive Officer at the American Retirement Association, noted, “We are delighted to have Ed join the GAC. He knows how effective advocacy can strengthen the retirement industry and promote retirement saving and financial wellness for more Americans.”
Ed O’Connor stated: “The American Retirement Association is committed to the continued growth and success of private employer-based retirement plans. I’m honored and excited to be working with the members of the GAC to ensure that laws and regulations governing the retirement industry make it easier for more employers to sponsor plans and for more employees achieve retirement security.”
Based in the Washington, D.C. area, the American Retirement Association is a non-profit professional organization with two major goals: to educate all retirement plan and benefits professionals, and to create a framework of policy that gives every working American the ability to have a comfortable retirement.
Princeton Financial Consultants LLC drives transformation for wealth management, banking, and insurance companies. Currently, the firm is leading a top-tier financial services company’s strategic response to several potentially disruptive regulatory changes.
