FTSE 100 companies risking 80bn over the next 12 months through their pension schemes
FTSE 100 companies risking 80bn over the next 12 months through their pension schemes
Deloitte & Touche LLP
24 Jul 2008 United Kingdom Investment - Performance, Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
The investment strategies of FTSE 100 company pension schemes are exposing their corporate sponsors to significant risk according to analysis by actuaries at Deloitte. Pensions Partner David Robbins comments: “We estimate that the average FTSE 100 company is currently putting 8% of its market value at risk through its pension scheme. Our analysis shows a wide variation in the pensions risk being taken, from less than 1% of company market value to more than 100%, but the bottom line is that most companies are taking too much risk in their pension schemes. To give an idea of the extent of the risk, we calculate that there is a 1 in 20 chance of FTSE 100 pension scheme deficits increasing by a further £80bn over the next year. I seriously question whether this is the right economic climate for businesses to take such large gambles.”

FTSE 100 pension deficit falls to zero
Deloitte & Touche LLP

According to analysis by Deloitte actuaries, the pension schemes of the FTSE 100 companies now have an aggregate surplus relative to the accounting value of their liabilities. Pension deficits have fallen by £40 billion since the start of the year and are at the lowest level for more than five years. The improvement has been fuelled by an increasing UK equity market and falls in the prices of bonds used to measure pension scheme liabilities.

Pension deficits down in 2006
Current FTSE 100 deficit is 40 billion
Deloitte & Touche LLP
11 Jul 2006 United Kingdom Surpluses and Deficits, Scheme Issues & Trends, Accounting
The total deficit for final salary pension plans of FTSE 100 companies is currently £40 billion, according to actuaries at Deloitte. The deficit has fallen by £35 billion since the beginning of the year primarily due to falling prices in bond markets used to value pension liabilities. Deloitte estimates the current value of FTSE 100 pension liabilities is £40 billion, the majority of which has been reflected on company balance sheets under new International Accounting Standards.

Companies unprepared for A-Day, says Deloitte
Many companies still need to finalise arrangements
Deloitte & Touche LLP
31 Oct 2005 United Kingdom Taxation, Pension Reform
A survey of UK companies by Deloitte has revealed that with less than six months to go before the start of the new simplified tax regime for pensions, many companies have yet to finalise alternative arrangements for high earning individuals who will be adversely affected. Only 12% who acknowledged that they have executives adversely impacted by the change have finalised their arrangements. Cash compensation is the most popular alternative benefit and is likely to be used by 73% of respondents. UURBS and FURBS are being adopted by 27% and 10% respectively. Other options such as employee benefit trusts and family benefit trusts were much less popular.
