Covington’s Richard Shea Co-Hosts Wharton School Conference on “Reimagining Pensions: The Next 40 Years”

May 2, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC, May 2, 2014 — Public confidence in retirement systems is shakier than ever. Covington & Burling’s Richard Shea is co-hosting an international conference to address both the reasons and potential solutions to the growing gap in public confidence. Titled “Reimagining Pensions: The Next 40 Years,” the conference will bring together leading academics, economists, actuaries, government policymakers, and other experts from the United States and abroad to examine the opportunities and challenges for the future of retirement security.

The event is being held at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and is co-hosted by Prof. Olivia Mitchell of the Wharton faculty and executive director of the school’s Pension Research Council and Boettner Center on Pensions and Retirement Research.

The conference, being held on Thursday, May 1, and Friday, May 2, will feature discussions of current retirement models, options for policy reform, and new pension plan designs, and draw comparisons among the approaches taken in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Singapore.

Mr. Shea will deliver a paper on portfolio pension plans. Covington’s John Vine will speak on the role US pension rules play in fostering pension plans for American workers.
