DB PLAN SPONSORS FACE UNPRECEDENTED RISK
Financial-market turmoil as well as regulatory, accounting, and funding reforms have significantly increased pressure on defined benefit (DB) pension plan sponsors.
Sponsors who may previously have maintained robust, well-funded plans are now confronted with:
- Considerable plan deficits;
- Rising sponsor contributions; and
- Escalating stakeholder concern regarding the plan's exposure to risk.
For many plan sponsors, the time to rethink risk is now.
