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.

Covering the cost of Christmas for life
Covering the cost of Christmas for life
Hargreaves Lansdown
13 Dec 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Pensioners & Retirement
Hargreaves Lansdown has conducted research looking at the amount an individual would need to save into their pension to buy an annuity at the age of 65 that covered the average cost of Christmas for life. According to the results, a pension pot of 17,200 would be needed to buy an annuity at the age of 65 that would be sufficient to meet the average overall cost of Christmas of 538 per year. The research also found that women would need a bigger pension than men to cover the cost of Christmas, as they are more generous gift-givers.
