PLI's Pension Plan Investments 2011: Current Perspectives

Experienced practitioners in the area of pension investment law, together with senior representatives of the Department of Labor, will give their perspectives, and illuminate issues, on current topics and recent developments. Statutory, regulatory and market changes in the wake of the financial crisis ensure a full agenda of new developments to be debated and analyzed by the panelists. Already, the Dodd-Frank financial reform legislation has brought a new regulatory structure for pension investment activities in the derivatives markets that raises substantial uncertainties for a broad group of investment products, and compliance issues for plan fiduciaries. In addition, changes to important prohibited transaction exemptions have been adopted. Also, the business of financial institutions continues to evolve in the aftermath of the crisis, including changes in investment markets and consolidation and refocusing of business lines among the institutions themselves. Keeping abreast of these developments, and staying current on new ERISA caselaw, enforcement actions and ordinary course investment practices, is critical. The course aims to provide diverse perspectives and deep insights on all these topics.
