A positive year for corporate pension plans

How does your company's pension plan compare to others? More importantly, is it on track to meet the goals you've set for funding, risk, and return? Our Pension Advisory Solutions team analyzed defined benefit pension data from 350 corporations and found some encouraging trends.

Corporate Pension Trends 2022 can help you understand where your plan stands, where it could go, and the options available to get it there.

Highlights include:

  • Funding status. Equity markets and interest rates helped funding status reach its highest level since before the global financial crisis of 2008.
  • Pension risk. Plan sponsors are taking more risk with their asset allocation, deviating from their stated risk tolerance.
  • Asset allocation. As increased funding status allowed for further movement along de-risking glide paths—fixed income investments surpassed equities for the first time.
