Pension Plans – Asset Returns – Expected v Actual

Pension Asset Return - Expected v Actual - 2014 all (205)During 2014, investment returns on assets of defined benefit pension plans exceeded the expected asset returns for the 3rd consecutive year. Pension asset returns have been positive for the past 6 years since the huge losses of 2008.

This chart shows aggregate global results for the pension plans of 205 U.S. companies for fiscal years ending in 2000 through 2014. Solid blue circles indicate expected asset returns included as a component of net periodic pension cost. Open red squares indicate actual investment results.
