10th Annual Pension & Benefits Seminar: The Accelerated Normal

Office

Toronto

Date

November 18, 2020

We are living through unprecedented times. A phrase that is so overly used is that we are moving into a “new normal”. In the pension world, our view is that the COVID-19 crisis will lead to an “accelerated normal”, and the lasting impact will be a renewed focus on best practices and the acceleration of trends. Pension plan sponsors and administrators need to consider strategically how their plan is positioned relative to these trends and if changes need to be made to better respond to the new challenges and opportunities presented.

Please join our panel of speakers as they examine key trends and best practices including legislative and case law developments, reliance on technology, plan consolidation, flexible governance, the use of ESG factors and long term objectives and risk management. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session.

Speakers include:

  • Paul Owens, Deputy Superintendent of Pensions, Government of Alberta
  • Michael Peters, Vice President and Deputy Superintendent of Pensions, BCFSA
  • Jennifer Rook, Head, Pension Operations and Regulatory Effectiveness, FSRA
