Aon plc Research Reports

On August 18, 2014, Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc, said that defined benefit pension schemes should divert sponsor contributions into alternative financing strategies as they climb towards healthier funding status, with many of the schemes over 100% funded. Aon Hewitt's recent survey of 86 clients with recently completed funding valuations showed that 30% of them were substantially above 100% funded, while 42% of them were around 100% funded on a best estimate basis. "As they become less keen on paying in cash we are already starting to see more companies considering alternative ways of providing that security, including escrow, charges over assets, letters of credit, surety bonds and other mechanisms. As ever with pensions, there is no one-size-fits-all but we believe that alternative financing solutions are an option that every DB pension scheme should be considering as part of their strategy to reach pensions stability," said Lynda Whitney, Partner at Aon Hewitt.
