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 communication. Ortec Finance provides software and services to help our clients manage these challenges.
The ALM consultants and investment consultants working for the Pension Strategy Solution advise pension funds on their strategic (investment) policy, the practical implementation of this policy and support the funds with the monitoring of short and long term risks.
The consultants of the Pension Strategy Solution make use of the software GLASS, which is developed by Ortec Finance and can be adjusted to the specific circumstances of the pension fund. This high quality software is also implemented at our clients so that they are able to perform analyses independently.
