2015 Global Pension Risk Survey

Pension risk management in the U.S. is undergoing a significant change. With better tools, information, and understanding at their disposal, corporate pension plan sponsors are now taking more active control of their de-risking strategies by adapting them to new objectives, market environments, and an evolving regulatory framework.

While most pension plan sponsors are still focused on reducing risk, others are taking strategic risks to generate better returns. Aon Hewitt’s 2015 Global Pension Risk Survey finds that many plan sponsors are leveraging new tools and capabilities to take an active role in managing pension risk and fine-tuning their strategies to meet their changing needs. Such flexibility was unthinkable under the pre-economic crisis framework of static investment policies and once-every-five-year asset/liability studies. The expertise and infrastructure built over the past several years makes this possible.
