EDHEC Survey of the Asset and Liability Management Practices of European Pension Funds
EDHEC Survey of the Asset and Liability Management Practices of European Pension Funds
EDHEC-Risk Institute
Jun 2010 Europe (including EU) Investment - Management, Investment - General, European Union issues
The results of this pan-European survey suggest that, despite the professionalisation of asset/liability management (ALM) in pension funds and their service providers, risk-controlled strategies may not have been taken up widely enough. That these strategies are understood by only half of respondents may account, in part, for the lack of widespread adoption.
