One of the nation's premier pension administration services companies can now help pension plan sponsors explore a pension plan's risks and possible future outcomes.
Dorsa Consulting is offering Asset/Liability Modeling, a tool used to help pension plan sponsors consider a range of future outcomes but can be used to help them make more solid short-term decisions.
"Put in the simplest terms, Asset/Liability Modeling is very similar to a roadmap," said John McCrary, CRA, CRC, principal and managing partner of Dorsa Consulting. "We have a team of actuaries who not only can show pension plan sponsors how to use these roadmaps, but give plan sponsors options when dealing with pension plan contributions, asset allocation and plan amendments."
Asset/Liability Modeling cannot guarantee an employer-funded pension will reach its goals, but it can point to a path or provide a set of strategies that will help the pension become successful. Asset/Liability Modeling can be a helpful tool for pension managers in both the public and private sector.
"We suggest every pension manager, at some point, go beyond a simple actuarial valuation and look to more in-depth long-term strategies," McCrary said. "Asset/Liability Modeling can also be used as a tool to strengthen communication between the plan sponsor, the senior management and the investment managers and from there, senior managers can set plan policy using risk measures that makes sense and can be executed by investment managers."
With revenues in excess of $1.5 million, Dorsa Consulting currently provides pension plan administration support to more than 75 professional firms that represent more than 500 plans, as well as to more than 250 individual plan sponsors.
