New monthly publication: Pension Indices
Readers of News & Views have come to expect two sections in each issue relating to pension statistics titled “Tracking the funded status of pension plans” and “Impact on pension expense under international accounting.”
We are now introducing a new, separate Morneau Shepell monthly publication called Pension Indices, to be published a few days after each month end. Pension Indices will include details on how the following pension solvency and accounting metrics move from month to month for a typical pension plan:
- Solvency ratio
- Commuted value
- Annuity purchase cost
- Accounting balance sheet
- Accounting pension expense
- Asset Value.
The January 2021 Pension Indices is now available on Morneau Shepell’s website.
