Majority of DB Plans Should Question the Traditional Derisking Glidepath
Pensions & InvestmentsLink to more items from this source
Dec. 21, 2015
"[F]rozen plans account for a minority of U.S. defined benefit plans -- and the glidepath approach that's best suited for them is often suboptimal and even painful for plans that are still accepting new participants and/or accruing obligations to existing ones. Those still-accruing -- either open plans, or those closed to new participants -- account for approximately 70% of U.S. defined benefit plans ... Instead of the mechanistic glidepath, these plans might be better off considering a more flexible and holistic approach to risk that maximizes returns based on the plan's unique circumstances and tolerance for risk."
