Pension Finance Watch – August 2022

Pension index decreased in August

September 8, 2022

The WTW Pension Index declined slightly in August 2022, remaining at a level comparable to last month’s, and well above June’s.

This month’s change was due to negative investment returns, almost completely offset by decreases in liabilities. The end-of-August index level of 96.9 reflects a decrease of 0.1% for the month.
