Overview

Overview

Corporate sponsors are increasingly turning to Integrated Risk Management (IRM) frameworks to make decisions based on a thorough understanding of risks. Establishing an IRM framework requires galvanising the support of trustees, sponsors and advisors in developing clear and robust covenant, investment and funding strategies. With this come the challenges of ensuring collaboration across all areas, agreeing funding time frames both in the long and short term, assessing current and future scheme risk exposure and tolerance, monitoring risks and stress testing and understanding the scheme’s potential current and future cash requirements are affordable for the sponsor, not to mention identifying solutions for managing risk.

The Financial Times, in association with Mercer, is delighted to present this private dinner entitled: ‘Delivering tailored risk strategies for Chief Financial Officers: Managing risk and maximising opportunities for better outcomes’. This dinner will bring together Chief Financial Officers, Finance Directors and senior financial and pension decision-makers from different sectors to discuss the challenges facing DB schemes, as well as identifying the opportunities and solutions for low risk strategies and how to manage risk to deliver improved returns.
