Pension PBO Funded Ratio

Pension PBO FR 2014 all fy+1 (275)As I’ve been separately exploring in a post looking at plan assets and projected benefit obligations for defined benefit pension plans sponsored by public U.S. corporations, during 2014 the increase in obligations due to lower interest rates outpaced investment gains in assets. The result: a drop in the aggregate pension plan funded ratio, reversing roughly two thirds of the increase in pension funded ratio experienced during 2013.

This chart shows the aggregate global pension plan funded ratio determined on the basis of projected benefit obligations for 1995 through 2014 for 275 companies, including employers with calendar fiscal years as well as non-calendar fiscal years. This set of data uses a fiscal year shift of one month: fiscal years ending during January are associated with the preceding calendar year. See further comment in my main post on 2014 Pension PBO Funded Ratio.

(As I’ve previously disclaimed, posts such as this represent efforts of my favorite pastime. My formal work does not involve any of this, and none of it represents any position or comment that should in any way be attributed to my employer. Likewise, as always, it represents general personal impressions and should not be treated or used as formal professional advice.)
