The Pension Plan is Dead, Long Live the Pension Plan: New Trends in Pension and Other Retirement Plan Design


Traditional defined benefit and defined contribution models face increased scrutiny.


·        For DC plans, there is no pooling of longevity or investment risk, and members generally are left with complicated decision making.


·        For DB plans, there are cost uncertainty issues from the plan sponsor’s perspective. In addition, with the changing demographics and low interest rates, many DB plans are facing sustainability issues.


While many jurisdictions are seeking creative solutions to tweak the DB and the DC model to overcome these challenges, some jurisdictions are also considering other plan design options that incorporate certain of the DB and DC attributes, but attempt to address some of these issues. This webinar features speakers from Canada, the Netherlands and the United States, who will examine pension innovations and trends in their respective jurisdictions.
