With Trustees and advisers of DB pension schemes continuing to grapple with combined challenges of deficits, increasing scheme maturity and reaching funding targets; Insight will share their thoughts on how investment, risk management and liability valuations can be better integrated to deliver reliable future funding outcomes.

In this event, Insight will:

  • revisit the DB pensions challenge;
  • provide context to the role that assets need to play in an integrated approach and cover how this can deliver an alternative methodology for liability valuations; and
  • discuss the portfolio implications and practical challenges of implementing an integrated approach.
