Asset Allocation. Each of the five New York City Retirement Systems has its own Board of Trustees which, working with the Bureau of Asset Management and the Board’s consultants, makes decisions on the funds’ asset allocations based on factors including economic risk, return, performance, and beneficiary distributions. A benchmarking approach to optimal asset allocation for insurers and pension funds We solve the optimal asset allocation problem for an insurer or pension fund by using a benchmarking approach. Under this approach the objective is an increasing function of the relative performance of the asset portfolio compared to a benchmark. The Cited by: 8.

The first metric takes the ratio of the worker's ex-ante maximum welfare under optimal asset allocation to her welfare under the pension fund actual asset allocation: the higher the ratio, the worse the pension fund performance. We also study cross-sectional differences in rebalancing.

The results indicate that US and defined benefit pension funds rebalance less. Moreover, external managers and active managers can be identified as the major source of poor rebalancing. Lastly, between asset classes, pension fund are more passive in alternative : Dennis Bams, Peter C.

Computing the optimal life-cycle asset allocation allows to use it as a performance evaluation benchmark, which explicitly accounts for pension plan role in smooting participants’ consumption risk.

This research was conducted through a descriptive survey study and utilized secondary data obtained from the RBA website.

Next, I investigate how pension funds implement the asset allocation policy. Pension funds engage in three asset management decisions: changing the strategic asset allocation policy, market timing and security selection.

I explore the role of size and liquidity for pension fund performance in all three asset management components. DB pension. why asset allocation matters in Chapter 2, the identification of pension profession- als needed to manage a pension system in Chapter 3, and money manager commu- nication and oversight in Chapter 4 owe their place to the fine work in Miller’s.
