The new year brings a degree of optimism, clouded by the memory of a disastrous 2022 with the S&P falling 19.4%. While inflation seems to be trending down, talk of recession lingers, along with news of large company layoffs.

Our speakers will discuss:

  • 2022 investment returns
  • Interest rate changes and the impact on pension liabilities
  • Pension funded status
  • Outlook for 2023
