The consideration of Pension Obligation Bonds is once again gaining significant traction as communities explore available strategies to address the challenges of underfunded pension funds. This session will provide an overview on when and why pension obligation bonds should be issued as well as investment strategies regarding the investment of proceeds from pension obligation bonds.

Learning Objectives:  Participants completing this session will be able to:

1. Understand what conditions create a favorable context in which a community may consider issuing pension obligation bonds;
2. Gain insight that pension obligation bonds are not intended to generate savings for the pension fund, but instead are intended as an arbitrage strategy for the benefit of the pension fund; and
3. Learn about the opportunities and risks from investing proceeds in diversified equity and fixed income strategies with a long-term horizon, using asset allocation strategies developed to fit a particular community’s needs.

Speakers: Andrew Kim, Director, Public Finance, PMA Securities, LLC Timothy A. Palmer, CFA, Senior Portfolio Manager, PMA Asset Management, LLC Erik Stoltz, Institutional Sales Manager, PMA Companies, LLC
