    Les faibles taux de rendement : des régimes de retraite en évolution
    En collaboration avec Finance Montréal, la Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec et Corporation Financière Power

    La baisse soutenue des taux d’intérêt et des attentes de rendement, jumelée à l’augmentation de l’espérance de vie, a mis une forte pression sur les régimes de retraite – ceux à prestations déterminées comme ceux à cotisations déterminées. Comment, dans ce contexte, les gouvernements et les entreprises de divers pays ont-ils ajusté la politique de placement, le budget de risque, le financement des régimes et le niveau des prestations ? Les mesures prises à ce jour sont-elles appropriées et suffisantes pour faire face à cette nouvelle réalité ? Où en est, dans ces pays, la prise de conscience des divers intervenants et des populations par rapport à cet enjeu ?

    Low Rates of Return: Changing Pension Plans
    In collaboration with Finance Montréal, Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec and Power Financial Corporation

    The continued downtrend of interest rates and returns expectations, combined with increased life expectancy, has put strong pressure on both defined benefit and defined contribution pension plans. In this context, how have governments and businesses from various countries adjusted their investment policy, risk budgets, plan funding and benefits? Have the measures taken to date been appropriate and sufficient to deal with this new reality? Are the various stakeholders and populations, in selected countries, aware of this issue?
