Pension funds face a host of challenges in today's markets – their need for effective risk management has grown in magnitude, while their internal systems and staff remain constrained. Markets are more complex, dynamic, and uncertain than ever, yet plans often lack the resources to fully staff a risk function. Whether assets are managed in-house or by external investment managers, staying on top of portfolio risks while aggressively managing costs are a significant challenge.
