Limiting financial losses at a time of crisis through active portfolio management

Nevertheless in spite of the near across-the-board losses experienced by these funds, the approach and experience of the Labour Market Supplementary Pensions Institution (Arbejdsmarkedets Tillaegspension (ATP)) stands out as an exemplary model of good practice. The experience of the ATP demonstrates that the effect of financial crisis does not have to be as catastrophic as it might first appear. With a sound approach comprised of active portfolio management and the use of appropriate financial instruments, the ATP has been able to emerge from the crisis relatively unscathed by keeping losses to a minimum. Of course, the ATP method cannot be assumed to be one hundred percent water-tight in all contexts. Nonetheless, it is suggestive of what might constitute an appropriate crisis approach that can be replicated by other similar institutions.
