  • Inside Access: Managing Uncertainty - The Search for a Golden Discount-Rate Rule for Defined-Benefit Pensions

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

Pension fund sponsors use a discount rate to determine the value of assets they must set aside today to pay for promised benefits in the future. If the rate is too high, the assets are too meagre, and vice versa. Is there an optimum discount-rate rule that strikes the right balance?

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy

To register for this call, please contact Michele Cherry at mcherry@cdhowe.org
