Defined Benefit Pension PlansFebruary 1, 2006 7:30 AM to 9:00 AMMayfair Golf and Country Club, Edmonton, Alberta Format: In PersonDefined Benefit Pension Plans - what is their future? Presenter: Keith Ambachtsheer There is now a broad consensus that our workplace pension system is sick. Most pension experts think the cure is to put a DB chicken in every working Canadian's pension pot. Keith Ambachtsheer disagrees, but does not believe that DC plans are the answer either. So what is the answer? This is the question he intends to address at the CPBI Breakfast Meeting on February 1. Keith began his career as an investment analyst with Sun Life Assurance Company, advanced as a partner and research director for Canavest House, and became co-founder and partner of Pension Finance Associates. He has operated his own firm, K.P.A. Advisory Services Ltd. since 1985. He provides strategic advice on governance, finance, and investment matters to governments, industry associations, pension plan sponsors, foundations, and other institutional investors. Keith played a major role in founding of the Rotman International Centre for Pension Management (ICPM). He was recently appointed the Director of ICPM and Adjunct Professor of Finance at The Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. He is responsible for the management, administration and external representation of the Centre and also leads the charge for shaping and executing the Center's research agenda.
