Brand New Interview on Pension Intelligence: Inflation Hedging for Absolute Beginners
LONDON, September 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
According to the latest research, UK pension schemes hedged a record GBP13.9bn of
inflation risk in the first quarter of 2012. It has been revealed that inflation hedging
activity had almost doubled compared to the same period last year!
Finance iQ recently interviewed Gary Knapp, CFA, Trustee of the Pramerica Retirement
Savings Plan, who spoke about Inflation Hedging for Absolute Beginners
offered a snapshot of why it is so high on the pension funds agenda nowadays. Mr Knapp
also shared insights on where to go for in depth advice on inflation hedging and how to
avoid unnecessary complexity dealing with inflation issues.
Commenting on the impact of inflation on pension schemes, Mr Knapp said: “Inflation in
particular affects those schemes with indexed benefits. So, for example, rising inflation
may raise future benefits and asset returns may not keep up – or even falling inflation
may not cause benefits to fall, but this also usually means lower interest rates and that
can increase liability values.”
