Joint CIA, IFoA, SOA Webcast: Measuring Pension Plan Risk from an Economic Capital Perspective – May 15, 2019

Wednesday, May 15
11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. ET
Offered in English

Host: Chris Fievoli (FCIA), Staff Actuary, Communications and Public Affairs, Canadian Institute of Actuaries
Moderator: Lori Curtis, Professor, Department of Economics, University of Waterloo
Speakers: Stephen Bonnar (FCIA), University of Waterloo
Aniketh Pittea and Pradip Tapadar, School of Mathematics, Statistics & Actuarial Science, University of Kent

Jointly sponsored by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, Society of Actuaries, and CIA, this webcast will present research that compares the risk profiles of pension plans in the UK, the US, and Canada.

Economic capital, the 0.5th percentile result of a stochastic projection, is the primary risk measure employed. The research examines not only the difference in economic capital requirements between typical plans in the three countries, but also its sensitivity to changes in asset allocation, contributions, and starting funded status.

At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the key items that affect the financial risk of a defined benefit pension plan;
  • Compare the financial risk implications of different pension plan designs; and
  • Evaluate the impact of alternative asset mix policies on the financial risk of a pension plan.
