May 2007 United States Investment - Performance, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Countries - US
According to Milliman Consulting's 2007 Pension Funding Study, pension funded status during 2006 was a win-win situation. Strong funded status improvement fuelled by further strong investment returns beating expectations (12.8% vs 8.4%) boosted pension fund assets at the same time that increases in interest rates moderated the growth of pension obligations. Although new accounting rules forced most companies to reduce shareholder equity to recognise defined benefit pensions and other post-retirement benefits, that reduction was about half of the impact that had been projected last year, due to the good year for the funded status of the plans. The study was of the financial reports of 100 large US corporations that sponsor defined benefit pension plans. As a group, these companies had pension plan assets of almost $1.3 trillion and annual pension cost of $26.4 billion.
