The defined benefit (DB) landscape has experienced significant change over the past year.
While the four core pillars for DB plans – journey planning, return-seeking approach, liability-hedging approach, and governance – remain stable, the top considerations within each area have evolved to reflect the current market conditions.
In our new paper, Top Considerations for DB Plans in 2024, we explore what plan sponsors and fiduciaries should consider as they plan for the upcoming year, such as:
- The importance of diversification and the role of alternatives
- How the decline of interest rates could erode the gains achieved in recent years
- The crucial role of a robust governance structure in navigating through uncertain times
Download our paper for deeper insights, additional considerations for 2024, and various approaches to help plan sponsors adapt to a new environment characterized by heightened funded status positions, potentially increased required contributions and elevated yields and discounts rates.
