Speakers at the event - which will be held at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in London - will include Merchant Navy Officers Pension Fund (MNOPF) chief executive Andrew Waring, who will discuss his scheme's risk reduction strategy and how it embarked on a £1.5bn longevity swap last year.
The forum will look at the key market issues in risk reduction and assess the most popular risk reduction strategies at the current time.
In addition it will look at how to boost the effectiveness of scheme de-risking exercises; dynamic de-risking; longevity risk and asset-backed contribution (ABC) arrangements.
It will also include a session on how schemes can gain long term capital appreciation - Funding 2.0: The latest thinking in asset strategy - as well as a panel session on taking a holistic approach to risk.
The forum is complimentary to pension scheme trustees, pension fund managers and finance directors and managers but spaces are now limited. Register now to secure you place.
