Pension de-risking is emerging as a critical theme among defined benefit plan sponsors of all sizes. Companies with significant pension obligations might consider adopting fresh strategies to reduce their exposure to plan volatility.

Please join partners Maureen Gorman, Larry Hamilton and Steve Rooney as they discuss pension de-risking transactions and recent developments that may affect plan sponsors’ decisions to pursue de-risking strategies. This teleconference will cover topics such as:

  • An overview of legal and regulatory requirements for pension plan annuitization, both within and outside of a standard plan termination
  • Development of insurance and annuity structures in connection with pension de-risking
  • Recent revisions to mortality tables that affect financial reporting, and that may influence de-risking decisions.
