Are You Properly Mitigating Risk? Assess Your Fiduciary IQ.

A few weeks ago, Dr. Susan Mangiero and I jointly presented a webinar on the topic of pension risk management and fiduciary liability with a particular emphasis on public plans. My comments reflected my unique experience as the former executive director of the $17 billion Indiana Public Employees' Retirement Fund (PERF). Dr. Mangiero shared her views as an independent risk management and valuation consultant, author, trainer and expert witness.
