Maximising Value in DB
Maximising Value in DB
Hymans Robertson
Sep 2018 United Kingdom Investment - General, Surpluses and Deficits
Hymans Robertson has published a report looking at ways in which DB schemes could reduce their deficits. According to the report's findings, the current UK DB £500bn deficit could be halved if schemes explored alternative opportunities to create value across the "three pillars of value creation" identified by the consultancy. The three pillars relate to identifying a long term objective, adopting an efficient strategy which maximises every opportunity to create additional value, and pursuing operational effectiveness, for example through technology and the adoption of alternative governance structures.

  • Over half of DC asset managers will miss their cost disclosure deadlines, according to research by LCP. Should DC schemes remove a manager if they are unable to disclose transaction costs within a reasonable period of time?

Rich Man, Poor Man: The Policy Implications of Canadians Living Longer
CD Howe Institute E-Brief
CD Howe Institute
23 Aug 2018 Canada Countries - excl. European Union and US, Longevity
The CD Howe Institute has published a paper examining the relationship between earnings and longevity in Canada using an administrative dataset of Canada Pension Plan recipients. The study measures how longevity differs across earnings levels and uses these calculations for individuals in different birth cohorts to observe if the earnings-longevity gradient is steepening or if longevity is improving equally for everyone. According to the paper, the findings have direct policy implications for pensions and these are explored by showing how longevity affects the value of an annuity.
