ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
This joint pension and life practice area webinar was a follow-up to the popular breakout session from Envision Tomorrow 2023, and brought together subject matter experts for a panel discussion that covered the regulatory and structural evolution of insurance companies that provide pension risk transfer group annuity contracts.
At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees:
- Gained a high-level understanding of regulations impacting and structure of life insurance companies that write group annuity contracts for pension risk transfers;
- Learned about the state guarantees available to participants; and
- Gained insight into the fiduciary considerations pension plan sponsors and independent fiduciaries consider when purchasing a group annuity contract for pension plan participants.
