Today’s economic uncertainty is weighing on the minds of Canadian plan sponsors particularly as low interest rates and increasing volatility have reduced funding levels of many DB pension plans. The demand from sponsors looking to lock in their funding positions now and the desire to move risk out of their pension plans so they can focus on their core business are contributing to an enormous growth in the Canadian pension de-risking market.

In this Canadian Pension Risk Management publication, Brent Simmons participated with four other thought leaders in the Canadian pension de-risking industry to talk about the economic factors driving the demand and the trends shaping the coming year.
