The 3rd annual ESG Investing Breakfast Briefing is designed to provide institutional investors with tools and strategies for incorporating ESG considerations into investment operations across the portfolio.
Risk management has become an area of focus for pension plan sponsors as they update their strategies to smooth out volatility, meet their obligations, and respond to changes in the economic and regulatory environment. There are a multitude of considerations for the implementation of effective pension plan risk management. What are the risks? Which strategies make the most sense for a particular plan given its funding, operations and obligations?
P&I’s Canadian Pension Risk Strategies webinar provides an arena where plan sponsors can discover the best ways to navigate the complex process of risk management. Thought leaders will weigh the ongoing financial risks and increased market volatility with discussions on:
The economic landscape and considerations for pension risk management
Determining the right glidepath construction for your plan
Fixed income ideas on how to spend your risk budget
What’s new with return-seeking assets
The new funding rules and the impact on investment policy
Hedging techniques for smoothing volatility
Pension fund management experts will share their experiences for managing alignment of liabilities and risks more closely, as well as how to prepare for an end-state. Attendees will learn about the most successful investment strategies as well as ways to avoid pension risk pitfalls.
If you thought that as defined contribution plan sponsors move toward 100% adoption of target-date funds, growth of those funds would plateau or taper off over time, think again. While a new generation of employees has fully embraced target-date funds as a critical savings tool, those near or at retirement are forcing plan sponsors to think more deeply about retirement income.
This webinar will take a deep dive into the latest in target-date design, including the question of custom vs. off-the-shelf. In addition, our expert panel will discuss what’s new in the world of glidepaths.
Some of the topics the pannel will discuss:
Continued growth of target-date funds
Best practices in target-date and glidepath design
Are more plan sponsors going custom?
In addition, the panel will take questions from the audience.
