<< Recent market turmoil, coupled with changes in pension funding and accounting rules, have helped produce a “perfect storm” of volatility and risk in our defined benefit pension plans. As pension investment and risk management strategies continue to evolve to meet these demands, so does the need for informed fiduciary decision-making. This program is intended to provide an up-to-date and in-depth discussion regarding the fiduciary legal and risk management considerations involved in the design and implementation of pension investment management strategy, including liability driven investing (LDI) approaches and those integrated within a framework of corporate finance. Topics will include performance benchmark development, asset/liability duration matching, timing of implementation and the use of derivatives, alternative asset classes and leverage. >>
