Tania Narciso – Vice President, Chief Compliance Officer, CIBC Mellon
Careful attention to governance, risk, transparency, and accountability are critical to helping organizations affirm they are upholding the trust placed in them by plan participants, boards and other stakeholders. Organizations must take into account the structures, systems, and practices across their organizations, as well as the service providers, technology and people for which they are accountable. Tania Narciso of CIBC Mellon will provide a summary of recent trends, as well as practical input into strategic direction, implementation of policies, monitoring/mitigating risks. She will also address broader issues and challenges of governance such as conflict of interest, transparency, and the importance of integrity, and speak to how Canadian pension plans are shifting their approaches to governance amid remote working and pandemic operations.
