Pension schemes gain despite market turmoil
Surplus rises to 22bn
Deloitte Consulting
27 Sep 2007 United Kingdom Surpluses and Deficits, Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
Despite the recent turmoil in global markets, the total surplus in the pension schemes of the FTSE 100 companies has now increased to £22 billion, according to research from Deloitte. Pension schemes invest a significant proportion of their funds in equities and other risky investments to grow the assets faster than their liabilities in the long term. Despite the recent turbulence in markets linked to “sub-prime” mortgages and loans, the return on the UK equity market has been around 5% since the start of the year.

Will employees be financially ready for retirement?
Deloitte Consulting
20 Jul 2006 United States Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Countries - US
Despite increases in 401(k) plan participation, many employees are financially unprepared for retirement, according to the 2005-2006 Annual 401(k) Benchmarking Survey, conducted by Deloitte Consulting LLP (Deloitte Consulting), the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans and the International Society of Certified Employee Benefit Specialists. The survey of 830 plan sponsors nationwide revealed that plans with more than 70% participation by eligible employees rose to 67% versus 63% from last year’s survey.  Similarly, the percentage of plans with participation rates exceeding 90% increased to 24% from 19%. Despite these increases, respondents believe the majority of employees are not taking advantage of their 401(k) plans to effectively fund their retirement with one-fifth of respondents believing that “very few” of their employees either are, or will be, financially prepared for retirement.

Survey CFOs on recent legislative and regulatory reforms
Deloitte Consulting
