Pension Accounting Deficit or Surplus? Why it's irrelevant?
Richard Farr - Managing Director, Lincoln Pensions
About this talk
The calculation of the true pension deficit is not straightforward and is certainly not the one that regularly appears in the accounts. There are a number of different approaches and whichever approach you choose will give you a different pension risk perspective. What we can say, with regard to pensions, is that your company accounts, do not give a true and fair view.
Warning: This is not an accounting webinar. We will demonstrate why corporate accounts are misleading and what the real question to ask should be - Is the covenant strong enough to underwrite the risk? By listening to this webinar and understanding the integration between covenant, funding and investment, companies may better prepare themselves for inevitable storms ahead.
