  1. Thanks, Russ! Great to hear about the contacts made at Opal. What are the next steps with them? >

    • Thanks, Brett – for the first time in a long time I got the sense that plan sponsors were willing to hear about different approaches to managing DB plans, as the traditional approaches to asset allocation and investment structure have left these plans generally poorly funded. The idea of gaining greater transparency of their specific liabilities seemed to resonate. With greater insight of the plan’s liabilities, a more appropriate investment structure and asset allocation can be developed.
