Pension Finance Watch – July 2022

Pension index increased in July


August 4, 2022

The WTW Pension Index started the third quarter on a positive note, recovering most of June’s declines.

The increase was primarily due to strong investment returns, partially offset by the impact of decreased discount rates. The end-of-July index level of 97.0 reflects an increase of 2.4% for the month.
