True: Every day is one day closer to the next financial crisis, and thus prognostications of immintent doom and gloom must always be taken with an apple-sized grain of salt.Also true: Every day is one day closer to the demise last defined benefit pension paying out its last dime. But you know what? That doesn’t mean that this isn’t, arguably, the most tension-filled time in the world of corporate pension and insurance investing since the chaos of 2008. Trade wars; political uncertainty; gyrating equity markets; credit quality concerns; matching liabilities and maintain liquidity
All are driving heightened levels of hair-pulling and stress eating in offices around America.
We’re here to help. The 2019 Roundtable for Corporate Funds & Insurance Portfolios will address opportunities to enhance risk-return propositions, diversify away from persistent market risks, and adapt to an uncertain global regulatory and political environment.
