Actuaries working with defined contribution pension plans.

Description

Defined contribution pension plans have now become the flagship retirement solution throughout the private sector.  Initially, these arrangements focused was on the accumulation phase of defined contribution plans with little thought on the decumulation phase. As defined contriblution plans have matured, it has become evident that traditional decumulation methods such as life annuities do not provide a complete solution. Stakeholders have begun to turn their attention toward the development of more robust methods such as variable annuities to address income needs during retirement.

This session will explore details relating to recent research on innovative decumulation methods. At the conclusion of the session, attendees will be able to identify different types of innovative decumulation methods, explain risks and payouts involved and compare these methods against traditional methods.
