Belgian employers over-estimate DC benefits
Belgian employers over-estimate DC benefits
Watson Wyatt
12 Sep 2008 Belgium Scheme Issues & Trends, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
Belgian employers believe that their pension plans will reach the anticipated income for retirement but, according to Watson Wyatt’s Defined Contribution and Cash Balance Plans Survey, they are likely to be disappointed. The survey finds that the total retirement income of most employees who retire at age 60 would barely reach 50% of their final salary where the retirement income at age 65 goes up to 58% of the final salary. However, the majority of employers estimate that their plan will reach around 70% of final salary.

Apr 2004 Belgium Investment - Performance
These results indicate that the average Belgian pension fund produced a positive return of 9.6% over 2003. After three consecutive years of negative returns, Belgian pension funds seem to regain force. This positive result is mainly due to the rather conservative attitude of Belgian pension fund managers.
