What is the Pension Strategy Solution?
Pension funds around the globe are confronted with challenging circumstances regarding retirement, investment and planning; continued low yields, complex liabilities, regulatory pressure, implementing good governance, and member communications. Ortec Finance provides software and services to help our clients manage these challenges.
The ALM and investment consultants working in the Pension Strategy Solution advise pension funds on their strategic investment/asset allocations, the practical implementation of these allocations and support the funds with the monitoring of short and long-term risks.
These consultants make use of our ALM software, GLASS, which has been developed by Ortec Finance and can be configured to the specific circumstances of each pension fund. In addition, clients can also utilize the software themselves and perform analyses independently.
