Sleep well at night: invest like an insurer

Risk Management Conference

August 12-14, 2015

Risk Management Conference, Muskoka, Ontario

Presenters: Heather Wolfe and Steve Morris

Managing pension risk continues to be a priority for Canadian DB plan sponsors and many are looking for new solutions. Insurers have been managing pension risk for over 100 years and have been called the original LDI adopters. Whether the goal is to make the plan more sustainable or to eventually purchase annuities, DB plan sponsors can leverage the strategies that insurers use to manage their portfolios. In this session Heather and Steve reviewed the approaches used by insurers to keep their promises to policyholders, and translated those approaches into strategies that DB pension plan sponsors can adopt now to reduce pension risk and focus on their core business.
