Plymouth Meeting, PA (PRWEB) October 12, 2012
"Pension settlement activity is rapidly accelerating despite a low interest rate environment where many corporate pension plans are underfunded," according to Jay Dinunzio, Senior Consultant at Dietrich & Associates. Efficiently exiting frozen DB plan liabilities is an increasing area of focus for corporate CFOs. In order to remove pension liabilities from the corporate balance sheet, companies must settle the obligations with a purchased annuity or offer participants a lump sum payment which they elect to receive. Easier said than done! Dietrich & Associates is hosting an informative webinar event to help shed some light on the following key areas of consideration:
- The pros & cons of pension settlements
- Settlement costs
- Compare/contrast lump sum vs. annuity
- Best candidates for settlements
- Strategic monitoring of settlement cost environment
This event will be valuable for anyone working with a defined benefit pension plan:
- Finance executives
- Pension actuaries
- Investment consultants
- Asset managers
