The Great Debate?

We’ve attached for you a video highlighting a discussion (debate) between Ron Ryan, Ryan ALM (and a KCS strategic partner) two leading actuaries, and an asset consultant.  The session took place at the Florida Public Pension Trustees’ Association (FPPTA) conference in June. It covers many hot topics surrounding defined benefit pensions today.  It is a lengthy video, but definitely worthy of your time.  As you will see, Ron is not shy about bringing new ideas to the fore. Regrettably, our industry suffers from incredible inertia.  Doing the same thing for the last 50 years hasn’t worked. It is about time that we challenged that operating approach.

As you will see, Ron is not shy about bringing new ideas to the fore. Regrettably, our industry suffers from incredible inertia.  Doing the same thing for the last 50 years hasn’t worked. It is about time that we challenged that operating approach before DB plans go by way of the dinosaur.

Please don’t hesitate to get back to us with any comments and/or questions.  We are happy to engage in this conversation with you.  As you’ve heard us say many times, we are exceedingly concerned about the potentially negative social and economic ramifications from our failure to preserve and protect the benefits from DB plans, whether they are sponsored by public, private, or multi-employer institutions.
