Webinar Series: Risk and Investment Conference 2019, 17 June

Monday 17 June 2019 10:30 - 11:30

The IFoA’s Risk Management and Finance and Investment Boards are delighted to host a series of webinars covering a range of topical and trending topics ranging from climate related risks to Brexit.

As a result of the cancellation of the Risk and Investment conference, the IFoA is delivering the content from this conference through a different format, in the form of a webinar series, during June.   We are conscious that we are near the end of the CPD year for many IFoA members and we want to ensure that there is sufficient content available to allow members to fulfil their obligations by the end of June.  The webinars will also be recorded to give you additional opportunities to view the content.

Don’t Overlook the Impact at the Total-scheme Level when De-risking

Many schemes consider a buy-in as this interim step towards a buyout. However, given that the majority of buy-ins cover only pensioners, care must be taken to consider the impact on the scheme as a whole. Looking through this lens, carrying out a buy-incould make the overall portfolio outcome less certain and make it more difficult to achieve a full buy-out. We consider some of the potential issues associated with use of buy-ins, suggest an analysis framework that schemes should consider before making a decision and examine alternative de-risking options that could help schemes reach their endgame with greater certainty.
