ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Pension actuaries are required to develop or affirm investment return assumptions for a wide range of purposes. In the past, assumptions might have been primarily based on a review of historical returns. But as capital market conditions have evolved, this approach may no longer be considered reasonable. In particular, 10 years of expansionary monetary policy have resulted in historically low fixed-income yields and near-historic highs in equity price/earnings ratios.
This new environment requires new approaches to assessing return expectations. In this webinar, actuaries experienced in capital markets and investments review the fundamentals underlying return expectations and outline current approaches to forecasting returns in today's capital market environment.
This webinar is intended to support actuaries directly responsible for assumption recommendations, or in assessing recommendations or resources provided by other parties—a pension plan's outside investment adviser, their own firm's investment practice, or publicly available data and surveys.
