Managing Uncertainty: The Search for a Golden Discount-Rate Rule for Defined-Benefit Pensions
Managing Uncertainty: The Search for a Golden Discount-Rate Rule for Defined-Benefit Pensions
C D Howe Institute
Jan 2019 Canada Countries - excl. European Union and US, Public Sector Pensions, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Surpluses and Deficits
The CD Howe Institute has published a paper revealing that public sector pensions are using risky projections to calculate their future liabilities. The study shows that pension fund sponsors use a discount rate to determine the value of assets they must set aside for future benefits. If the rate is too high, the assets can be too meagre, and vice versa. The report examines whether there is an optimum discount-rate rule that finds the right balance.

Putting pensions in context - FTSE 350 Pensions Analysis 2018
FTSE 350 Pensions Analysis
Hymans Robertson
5 Dec 2018 United Kingdom Accounting, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Scheme Issues & Trends, Surpluses and Deficits
Hymans Robertson has published its tenth annual FTSE 350 pension analysis report, looking at issues affecting the DB pension schemes of FTSE 350 companies. According to the report, two significant themes for DB pensions in 2019 will be a tougher approach from TPR towards schemes going through actuarial valuations in the wake of several high-profile corporate failures in 2018, and the take-off of the DB consolidation market. The consultancy's research has also found that the majority of companies within the FTSE 350 are comfortably able to support their pension schemes, with 90% of companies able to pay off their IAS19 deficit with less than six months' earnings.
