 Selecting and Managing Asset Managers

Show Summary Details


The effective management of a pension plan involves selecting, monitoring, compensating, and if necessary, replacing money managers. Such decisions are typically made by pension plan boards or senior management. Sponsoring organizations must decide whether to manage the pension plan internally or seek external managers. Once a decision is made, the plan sponsors must implement the decision by finding the most suitable money managers, establishing appropriate control procedures to ensure that the job is done in accordance with policy, and developing policies for such matters as manager compensation and the termination of money managers.
