LDI Philosophy

  • A risk management framework that helps plans seek the best risk-adjusted returns relative to their liabilities
  • Solutions need to be constructed holistically within the context of the entire asset allocation and plan objectives
  • Focus on the main risk factors, in most cases over-customization should be avoided
