    Session 2: Understanding liability driven investment

    1) An introduction to LDI: 30mins
    We explore how to manage unrewarded liability risks, whilst continuing to generate returns in order to reduce any funding deficit.

    2) LDI in practice: 40mins
    We look under the bonnet of a typical LDI portfolio and consider topics such as portfolio construction, leverage rebalancing and counterparty risk.

    3) Planning for the end game: 40mins
    No two pension schemes are alike. Some may be well-funded on the path to buy-out, others may be seeking excess returns in line with a long-term recovery plan. The final session of the afternoon brings it all together as we explore the key principles of journey planning for defined benefit pension schemes.
