Corporate Pension Quarterly Q1 2021

Corporate Pension Quarterly Q1 2021

Opportunity Knocks

Additional fiscal stimulus, the re-opening of the U.S. economy and fears of higher inflation all contributed to a meaningful rise in interest rates during the first quarter of the year. Strong performance from public equities, particularly in the U.S., helped to offset large declines from fixed income assets.

GS Asset Management Professionals Weigh In

Mike Moran,
Senior Pension Strategist,
GS Asset Management

 

 

 

“We continue to believe that hedging the interest rate risk inherent in a pension plan's liability remains extremely important. We believe the primary role of a plan's fixed income portfolio is to mitigate the impact of interest rate volatility, regardless of current rate levels.”

Matt Maciaszek,
Fixed Income Portfolio Manager,
GS Asset Management

 

 

 

“We have seen periods of time in the past when funded levels have risen due to market movements, and we expect plans have learned from these episodes the risks inherent in trying to time the market.”
