Retirement and pensions

Pensions strategy delivering corporate strategy

Over the past decade, costs of defined benefit (DB) employee retirement plans have mushroomed; people are living longer, investment market conditions are difficult, regulation is tightening and state pension provision is in decline. And in spite of the best efforts of sponsoring employers, deficits have remained stubbornly on corporate balance sheets with potentially crippling consequences. Employer-provided pensions and retirement benefits are an essential part of the reward package in many countries. It is important for employers to be aware of, and to manage, the associated costs and risks, but they also have a critical role in helping their employees to make sound decisions.
