CAMRADATA Releases Paper about Pension Risk Transfer

March 15, 2012 ( - CAMRADATA Analytical Services released a white paper: "The Case for Pension Risk Transfer."

The paper explains why an upsurge in PRT products is expected in the U.S. and why removing defined benefit pension liabilities is not as expensive as most plan sponsors have been led to believe.  

The paper’s release follows CAMRADATA’s launch last year of a database to provide a comprehensive view of the U.S. PRT market (see “U.S. Pension Risk Transfer Database Launched”). The database allows users to obtain market data and research PRT products available from participating providers and to request quotes. It also features a new PRT Index designed to gauge when it is a relatively favorable time to execute a PRT transaction.
