PENSION FUND STRATEGIES, GOVERNANCE, REGULATION AND INVESTMENT TRAINING

 

INTRODUCTION

Pension is an income assured to citizens after retirement as a means of regular income and earning capacity. There are various types of pension schemes or plans across countries, but what is common to any scheme or plan is the need for good governance and regulation. Good pension scheme governance and regulation help identify, manage and control related risks.

Good governance is increasingly recognized as an important aspect of an efficient private pension system, enhancing investment performance and benefit security. Yet, despite regulatory and industry initiatives, governance weaknesses persist across many countries.

There are unique financial and societal challenges facing those who manage, regulate or provide governance for pension schemes. Pensions scheme governance and management training is therefore vital to ensure pension funds are managed properly.

This Pension Scheme Governance & Regulation training will provide advanced knowledge and management tools needed for the effective oversight and administration of publicly funded or partially funded pension plans. This program will help to modernize these plans and their associated pension funds in an environment of changing economic and social circumstances and new regulatory and accounting initiatives.
