Getting Ahead of the Curve: Helping Trustees Manage Pension Plan Risk in a Changing World

Risk is one of the biggest concerns facing multiemployer pension plan trustees. Trustees want the ability to identify, understand and address risk, and this requires an understanding of what the risks are and timely information to allow them to take action. One way that plan trustees can enhance their understanding is by using tools that quantify the types of risk and their magnitude, which can lead to more informed and better decisions for the long term.

In this webinar, Segal’s multiemployer pension experts discussed the risks we see today and unfolding in the future, including:

  • Investment returns
  • Asset volatility
  • Retirement longevity and changing workforce demographics
  • Employer contribution pressures and potential withdrawals
  • Plan designs with greater risk sensitivity than more traditional options

The presenters discussed the merits of tools and techniques that help identify and quantify risks, and they covered ways to manage risk, including plan design options that may be considered.
