The only US conference to focus exclusively on de-risking strategies for corporate and public pension plans. It is no secret that pension funds have been dramatically affected by the global financial meltdown. IQPCâ€™s Pension Plan De-Risking Event, which was developed in conjunction with an industry-leading advisory board, has been specifically designed to educate plan sponsors on the most effective strategies for diversifying effectively, bringing assets in line with plan liabilities, and reducing exposure to risky investments. Key topics being discussed at the event will be evaluating the suitability of an LDI (liability-driven investing framework) for your pension plan and getting to grips with the most effective, post-crisis portfolio diversification strategies. Enhancing the risk budgeting process and determining the optimal level and type of risk to have within your portfolio, as well as examining the most effective strategies and asset classes for hedging inflation risk. Legal, regulatory and economic perspectives on the future of the pension plan buy-out model and evaluating the suitability of investment outsourcing programs. Also, using derivative solutions to hedge against equity losses and determining the most effective asset allocation strategies for mitigating longevity risk.
