In addition to Scott’s panel, the event will address topics such as: how surplus returns should affect employee benefit plans, the processes for selection and evaluation of investment managers, legal issues facing pension plans, ethic regulations, and the importance of on-going education for plan sponsors and their fiduciaries.
