Pension Plans – Asset Return

FR PBO 2014 all fy+1 (275)Investment returns for assets of defined benefit pension plans sponsored by public U.S. corporations generally remained at the healthy levels experienced for 2012 and 2013. This chart shows the aggregate global investment returns during fiscal years ending in 2000 through 2014 for the assets of pension plans maintained by 275 companies (including companies with calendar fiscal years as well as non-calendar fiscal years; with a fiscal year shift of 1 month, i.e., results for companies with fiscal years ending in January are shifted back to the preceding calendar year). The solid horizontal line in the chart represents zero: years during which investment returns slipped below that line represent years when assets lost value. See further comment in my main post on 2014 Pension Asset Return.

(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.)
