The WTW Pension Index increased again in April 2024. Negative investment returns were more than offset by decreases in liabilities due to increases in discount rates, increasing the index by 1.3% over the prior month. The April 30, 2024 index level reached 115.8, the index’s highest level since early 2001.

About the report

Pension Finance Watch is designed to support our clients in the ongoing financial management of their U.S. retirement plans. The report tracks the value of the WTW Pension Index in a series that was initiated in 1990.

The index reflects the asset/liability performance of a hypothetical benchmark pension plan, and provides an indicator of capital market effects on pension plan financing. Individual plan results will vary based on such factors as portfolio composition, investment management strategy, liability characteristics and contribution policy.
