NSFM Roundtable Explores Risk Management and Fundamental Principles of Fiduciary Duty

A group of pension fund trustees, senior managers, advisors and academics gathered in Seattle in October, 2012 to discuss the challenges facing pension fund managers and trustees. Participants were asked to temper preoccupation with comparison to peer group practices by adopting a point of view that included balancing allegiance to the inter-generational interests of both young and old pension fund participants.

The ensuing conversation identified a wide range of pension manager concerns that revolve around risk management, prudence and the point of view required of the fiduciaries who govern pension funds.
