Reducing Pension Scheme Risk by using Liability Management Options
There are many cost-effective liability management options available to help companies reduce the volatility of their DB scheme costs and move schemes towards the trustees’ and company’s goal of self-sufficiency or buyout.
Two liability management options being used increasingly in Irish DB schemes are:
- Enhanced transfer value (ETV) exercises, in which members agree to an enhanced transfer value in lieu of their DB pension promise, and
- Pension increase exchange (PIE) exercises, in which pensioners agree to forego an entitlement to future pension increases in exchange for a higher flat pension today.
