)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: Navigating the Pension Plan De-Risking: Significant Implications to Employers and Retirement Policy Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on September 22, 2016 @ 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM (ET).
The interest in pension plan de-risking continues to heighten among corporate sponsors across the United States, as plan sponsors look for ways to reduce volatility on the balance sheet, in net income and in cash contributions. Two of the de-risking strategies that employers may engage include offering lump-sum distributions and/or transferring liabilities to a third party insurer. These strategies offer clear advantage to plan sponsors, but may also pose potential pitfalls on the company's retirement policy. To avoid unnecessary risk and volatility, companies must select the strategy that best suits their needs and will carry them through the next years to come.
This course offers an overview of the latest trends, critical issues and best practices on navigating pension plan de-risking. A panel of thought leaders and practitioners will help firms better understand the significant implications of de-risking to employers and retirement policy.
In a two-hour live Webcast, the speakers will discuss:
Pension Plan De-risking – An Overview

Pension De-Risking Strategies
