How to harness CEO self-interest to protect pensions
Warwick Business School
12 Feb 2019 United Kingdom Executive Pensions, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Scheme Issues & Trends
A study conducted by researchers at Warwick Business School, the University of Exeter Business School and Queen Mary University of London has found that forcing executives to become members of the same pension plan as their staff could protect DB schemes from closure. The research looked at the pension arrangements of all 322 publicly listed UK firms that offered a DB scheme between 1999 and 2013, and found that CEOs were 77% less likely to close their company's main DB scheme if they were a member of the scheme and a trustee of the plan, even if it was in deficit.
