We would like to take this opportunity to provide you some details on the Plans’ assets in light
of the volatility of the financial markets in recent weeks.
- In 2019, the Plans achieved superior returns, averaging over 20% nominal and 17% real
(after inflation and fees).
- The Plans are very well-funded from an actuarial perspective, with required contributions
well below the rates that the Bank has contributed over the past five years. As a result,
the three largest plans have robust Stabilization Reserve fund investments, which are
allocated to low-risk fixed income asset classes.
- While the recent financial markets news has been dominated by equities declines, our
retirement plans are invested in diversified asset classes, with total plan returns supported
by many of the lower-risk, fixed income components. The asset diversification supports
the Plans’ long-term ability to meet or exceed expected real returns.
Our teams are fully prepared to continue providing a quality service.
