Wilshire Consulting estimates two percentage point increase in aggregate funded ratio for US corporate pension plans in April

RELATED TOPICS​

The aggregate funded ratio for US corporate pension plans increased by 2.0 percentage points, reversing March’s decline, to end the month of April at 88.6 per cent, according to Wilshire Consulting.

The monthly change in funding resulted from a 1.6 per cent increase in asset values and a 0.8 per cent decrease in liability values. The aggregate funded ratio is up 4.1 percentage points year-to-date, and flat over the trailing twelve months. 
 
“April’s improvement in funded ratios was driven by the increase in Treasury yields and positive public equity performance,” says Ned McGuire (pictured), Managing Director and a member of the Pension Risk Solutions Group of Wilshire Consulting. “April’s 1.6 percentage point increase in asset value marks the fourth consecutive monthly increase, which is the longest such streak since January 2018.”
