Trends in Retirement Plan Investing and Sustainability
(Session 3: Pension & OPEB Insider)

The pandemic caused local governments to be reactive — focusing on short-term, annual reporting rather than long-term strategic budget plans. As we move forward, we’re now faced with increased inflation and global market uncertainty. Common concerns include:

  • How do we protect the solvency of our retirement programs without straining our overall budget?
  • What steps do pension plans and systems need to take to shore up their sustainability?
  • What are the latest approaches to driving down investment costs?
  • How are local government and state retirement systems preparing for the future?

This panel discussion will explore how some governments are applying innovative tools and forecasting solutions to a changing world and building upon their financial resiliency for 10, 20, 30 years ahead.
