In a career that spans banking, insurance and professional consulting, Benny Wan has helped clients assess and employ risk strategically. While working for one of Canada’s top five banks, he cofounded their risk solutions group and was responsible for designing and implementing customized risk solutions for pension plans and other institutional investors.
Benny was also involved in developing a range of pension de-risking options that included pension buy-in solutions and options for longevity risk transfers. These solutions were applied to multi-billion dollar opportunities, and demonstrate his capacity for introducing fresh thinking to a market currently defined by somewhat generic approaches.
“There’s tremendous growth potential for group annuities in the Canadian pension sector. That potential is going to be realized by organizations that embrace innovation and flexibility.”
Benny is an avid follower of new and emerging technologies. He is particularly interested in how they can make our lives, personal and professional, easier, more efficient and, ideally, more fun.
