Defined-Benefit ALM measures the market-risk exposure of a pension scheme, allowing for the specific detail of investment strategy, funding strategy, and scheme liabilities. Decomposing the overall risk into the individual risk factors allows at-a-glance analysis of the specific risk exposures confronting the scheme.
