Program Overview: According to estimates, global retirement assets are huge at $500 trillion. Improper decision-making about plan design, investment and risk mitigation could have an adverse impact on millions of individuals to include employees, retirees, taxpayers and shareholders. Service providers such as asset managers, banks and insurance companies are likewise impacted by bad governance and unchecked risk-taking. Everyone has a stake in the financial health of the worldwide retirement system and whether uncertainty is being adequately identified, measured, managed and monitored, especially now. New regulations, a flurry of fiduciary breach lawsuits, low interest rates, the complexity of modeling longevity, increased risk-taking, need for liquidity, cost of capital and worker mobility are just a few of the challenges that keep retirement plan executives, participants and their advisors up at night.
This one hour webinar will present an overview of retirement plan risk management to include the following:
- Description of economic and regulatory trends that influence retirement plan management liability and asset decisions;
- Discussion about retirement plan risk-taking, fiduciary liability and increased need for effective risk management protocols;
- Explanation of different categories of retirement plan risks;
- Discussion about the interrelationships of different categories of retirement plan risks; and
- What can be done, process-wise, to establish and maintain an effective retirement plan risk management program.
