Summary: Pension Trends – Chapter 9: Pension Scheme Funding and Investment, 2013 Edition
This chapter is about how pension schemes ensure that they have the money to fulfil their obligations of paying out benefits to pensioners and their dependents. Specifically, the chapter is about ‘funded’ pension schemes, those in which benefits (the schemes’ liabilities) are met from a fund built up in advance from contributions and returns on investment. It does not cover ‘unfunded’ (or pay-as-you-go) pension schemes – most public sector occupational pension schemes and the state pension system – where liabilities are not underpinned by a fund.
