New research on the connection between population structure and bond yields

A new research paper released jointly with the Society of Actuaries and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries looks at the implications for population aging on different asset classes and illustrates that impact on the financial status of pension plans. Exploring the impact of population aging on bond yields in various countries, this research finds that the ratio of the middle-aged to the young or old population is associated with either a reduction or an increase of bond yields at various points on the yield curve.

Listen to our new podcast! We speak with Steve Bonnar, FCIA, on this new research paper, The Connection between Population Structure and Bond Yields.
