Pension Plan Investments 2017: Current Perspectives

Released on: May. 23, 2017
Running Time: 06:15:55

Experienced practitioners in the area of pension investment law will share their perspectives, and illuminate issues, on current topics and recent developments. A new administration, as well as continued statutory, regulatory and market changes ensure a full agenda of new developments to be debated and analyzed by the panelists.  The Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation brought a new regulatory structure for pension investment activities in the derivatives markets that raised substantial uncertainties for a broad group of investment products, and compliance issues for plan fiduciaries. But will these regulations be a thing of the past with a new administration in place? Keeping abreast of these developments, and staying current on new ERISA case law, enforcement actions and ordinary course investment practices, is critical.

You will learn:

  • Updates on the DOL’s fiduciary rule and QPAM exemptions
  • Plan related issues for financial institutions
  • The year in review: ERISA litigation
  • Current topics for investment managers of ERISA plans, and in private equity and alternative investments

In-house and outside counsel, as well as allied professionals in the field, who deal with ERISA and pension products in the marketplace and the regulatory issues that arise from plan investment, will benefit from this program.
