Darren Wright Lectures at LCCC

Darren Wright, VP & Investment Officer, recently taught four hours of investments credit on the topic “The Fundamentals of Pension Investing” to The Illinois Public Pension Fund Association (IPPFA) at Lewis & Clark Community College, Edwardsville location. The Certified Trustee educational program is designed to increase a trustee’s basic knowledge of fiduciary responsibility as a Pension Board member on Illinois Police and Fire Pension Plans.  This 32-hour program is broken down into four, 8-hour modules.

The fundamentals of investing, funding and actuarial concepts, medical and disability issues, administration of pension benefits, and legal and ethical issues in compliance with the State of Illinois Pension Code are all topics discussed. Illinois statutes hold the pension fund trustees to the standard of a “prudent expert” and these courses are provided to meet that objective.
