I was really pleased to participate in a CAIA panel discussion on February 23rd. The panel was asked to address “Solutions for Optimizing US Pension Structures with CAIA SoCal, Session 1 of a Series”. You can find the video here. The primary focus was on public pension systems that are under considerable pressure due to Covid-19 issues related to both lost revenue and greater expenses. In some cases, public pension systems were already struggling for myriad reasons. I hope that you find my thoughts beneficial and I certainly welcome any questions/comments that you might have to share with me. I know that you’ll find the comments by my co-panelists, Ray Joseph and Von Hughes, and the Moderator, Guy Pinkman to be spot on. Enjoy!
