Over the past few decades, corporate defined benefit pension clients have experienced changes in pension accounting treatment, funding regulations, mortality assumptions and continual increases in PBGC premiums. Furthermore, pension sponsors have also experienced significant headwinds by way of volatility in interest rates and equity markets. The opportunity to match their investments with their liabilities has therefore become a prime focus for pension plan sponsors. Mr. Rana says Conning is ideally positioned in the LDI space. Its team leverages more than three decades of experience managing customized asset-liability focused investment mandates and its award-winning, proprietary risk modeling software.
