Barnett Waddingham
20 Mar 2019 United Kingdom Accounting, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Occupations/Industry Sectors, Surpluses and Deficits
Barnett Waddingham has published its latest survey of the assumptions adopted by UK universities for determining the value of their pension liabilities for accounting purposes. According to the survey, the size of pension deficits fell significantly by £600m over the year to July 2018. This has mainly been attributed to strong equity returns and a rise in bond yields that resulted in a higher average discount rate being used to value the liabilities.
