What Comes Next for Pension Plan Sponsors?

Dear Corporate Pension Plan Sponsors,

With the first quarter of 2016 ending, the agenda of corporate treasurers has four items pertaining to the defined-benefit pension plans you sponsor:  (1) another decline in funded status, (2) higher PBGC premiums starting to bite, (3) return of debt-funded pension contributions in the market, and (4) capital structure scenario planning, as negative interest rates appeared in more countries around the world during Q1.
