In this piece we set out to illuminate the changing landscape facing DB trustees and their choices for the endgame.
Funding positions have generally improved, and trustees have many options at their disposal in pursuing the goal of meeting all pension payments. We argue that what is most needed is a decision-making framework to assess the different options available against each other fairly, in the context of the specific scheme’s circumstances.
We hope we have been able to shed some light on what such a framework looks like.
SO WHERE NEXT?
DB trustees should ask themselves three simple questions:
- Does your scheme have a clear objective in place which can guide decision making?
- Do you have a good grasp of the full range of endgame options, what they off er your scheme, and how far away they are?
- Do you have a reliable method for selecting the right endgame option for your scheme?
If the answer to any of the above is “no” then please get in touch. We’d love to help.
