With more focus on journey planning than ever before, Trustees and sponsors are faced with a range of questions to address in determining their pension strategy.
The choices made in answering these impact on what is done now, how much risk is taken and, ultimately, what members will receive from the scheme. But how should trustees and sponsors go about deciding what strategy is “better” than another?
The defined benefit pension industry uses many different risk metrics usually borrowed from other areas of finance. Although no single quantitative metric can tell you the whole story, they are extremely useful for assessing actions and can accelerate understanding and decision making in a way than non-quantitative, intuition-based approaches cannot.
Our new Integrated Risk Modelling approach complements existing techniques by seeking to measure what members can expect to receive from their DB pension promise.
