Top 10 priorities for DB plan sponsors in 2012

Defined benefit plan sponsors say controlling funded status volatility will be their top priority this year, according to a poll from SEI. The poll surveyed 50 executives overseeing U.S. corporate DB plans that range from $25 million to $10 billion in assets. Here’s a list of their other top concerns.

Controlling funded status volatility

Nearly three-quarters (70%) of those surveyed ranked this as a “high” priority, while almost half (43%) ranked it as an “extremely high” priority for 2012. “As markets continue to be volatile, plan sponsors continue to pursue sophisticated risk management strategies designed to better control volatility of the funded status of their pension plans,” says Jon Waite, director, investment management advice and chief actuary with SEI’s institutional group.
