Aggregate funded ratio of US corporate pensions plans down in August

RELATED TOPICS​

The aggregate funded ratio for US corporate pension plans decreased to 83.3 per cent for the month of August 2015, according to Wilshire Consulting. The decrease in funding was the result of a larger decrease in asset value compared to the decrease in liability value. 

“We estimate that overall the funded ratio for the plan sample decreased by 2.8 per cent from 86.1 per cent in July to 83.3 per cent in August,” says Ned McGuire (pictured), vice president and member of the Pension Risk Solutions Group of Wilshire Consulting. “The decline in funding levels was driven by a 0.9 per cent decrease in liability value versus a 4.2 per cent decrease in asset value. 

“The asset result is due to negative returns for most asset classes, while the liability value declined due to a slight increase in corporate bond yields.”
