Sibson Consulting and Segal Marco Advisors' Pension Funding Tracker Shows Funding Increase in Third Quarter


The funded status of the model pension plan examined by Sibson Consulting and Segal Marco Advisors went up by 1 percentage point to 83 percent in the third quarter of 2017. The funding increase was due to a 4 percent rise in asset value that offset a 2 percent liability increase.

"Domestic stocks were positive for an eighth consecutive quarter, but were outperformed by both developed international and emerging market stocks, aided somewhat by a weakening dollar," sai David Palmerino, vice president with Segal Marco Advisors.

National Retirement Practice Leader Stewart Lawrence noted the importance for plan sponsors to set a course of action as their funded status changes over time. "Particularly for closed or frozen plans, setting a thoughtful course of action, or 'journey', can be a prudent way to avoid merely reacting to new data as it emerges," he said. "As plan sponsors start to crystallize strategies and tactics for 2018, this might be an appropriate time to raise the issue of examining the plan's risk-mitigation strategy."

To speak with one of our consultants about the model plan, and how it may inform plan sponsors' decision-making, please contact Todd Kohlhepp.
