Are Pensions Systemically Important in Canada?
Pension PulseLink to more items from this source
Jan. 13, 2015
"[T]he Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada spelled it out clearly, pension funds in general, 'are not a source of systemic risk' and because of their long investment horizon, they are a net provider of liquidity and collateral to the system, 'especially in times of stress.' So why would we want to introduce a new federal regulator who has the power to encroach and/or restrict investment decisions made by pensions? While there's definitely a rationale to have a central securities regulator, the proposed legislation needs to be significantly revised, especially as it pertains to pensions."
