Best practices that deliver promising returns.
BY Laurie Asuncion | July 7, 2010
Calvin Jordan, who is the Chief Executive Officer of the NSAHO Pension Plan in Nova Scotia, will describe his experience during the 2008 credit crisis and how they dramatically added leverage to improve their asset-liability matching.
There was much possibility examined when utilizing certain techniques – easily accessed through smaller pension plans to help increase returns. Jordan will share his experience on this at the upcoming Risk Management Conference.
He will also elaborate on âthe good, the bad and the benignâ on leverage through a real-life case study and include his unconventional view that leverage can increase expected returns while reducing risk, even in the midst of the 2008 credit crisis.
