The recent regulatory and economic environment has made traditional defined benefit (DB) pension plans a source of unwelcome corporate risk. Plan sponsors are increasingly focused on reducing their company’s exposure to volatility in pension funding and its negative impacts on corporate cash flow and financial statements. This has elevated DB plan management on the finance agenda, and in response, plan sponsors are exploring strategic ways to “de-risk” their plans.
Compared with just 10 years ago, plan sponsors now have more solutions available than ever before, and it can be difficult to settle on a course of action. Please join Seyfarth Shaw LLP and Curcio Web LLC for a discussion centered around governance, financial due diligence, and employee engagement with pension de-risking.
With a liability- and asset-driven approach, our discussion will include:
  • What drives pension de-risking and why more companies are embracing this strategy 
  • The spectrum of liability-side de-risking strategies 
  • Advantages and disadvantages of various strategies  
  • Regulatory risk management 
  • Administrative implications 
  • Managing asset risk over a time horizon
If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Freeman and reference this event.
