Resource constraints: sharing a finite world - Implications of Limits to Growth for the Actuarial Profession
Research Report
Actuarial Profession
17 Jan 2013 United Kingdom Longevity, Investment - Performance
The Actuarial Profession has published a report which models the impact of resource constraints on a pension fund. All scenarios modelled in this report showed lower returns on assets and higher costs for schemes compared to the "no constraints" model. The report revealed that a healthy defined benefit pension scheme could become insolvent within 35 years as a result of the limitations to growth as modelled, and in the absence of other detrimental influences.

Background risk and pensions
Paper on mortality and labour background risks on pension funding and finance
Actuarial Profession
28 Nov 2005 United Kingdom Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies), Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
A paper presented to the Institute of Actuaries has explored the effect of unhedgeable background risks such as mortality and labour risks (such as wages and turnover) on pension funding and finance. It investigates the literature on the economics and finance of background risk, and discuss its applicability to pensions. Most of the results in economics apply to the special case of additive background risk, which is part of, but not all of, the background risk faced by pension funds.
