JennisonDryden is Prudential Financial, Inc.’s (NYSE: PRU) proprietary mutual fund family.
“This critical training addresses issues facing employer-sponsored plans and will enable our wholesalers to serve as consultants for advisors interested in competing in this space,” said Michael Rosenberg, who recently joined JennisonDryden to spearhead its retirement effort.
So far, the JennisonDryden field wholesalers have earned the Professional Plan Consultant designation, which is accredited by Robert Morris University. A second wave of wholesalers is currently enrolled in the program as JennisonDryden ultimately seeks to have its entire sales force certified.
