US - SEI Investments has been retained by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) to provide critical financial modelling and associated analysis designed to show the impact of pension finance on overall corporate finance.
SEI, a global provider of consolidated defined benefit solutions, said the service would allow the federal insurer to more accurately predict the impact of economic, market and policy changes on plan funding and plan sponsors' financial condition.
The firm's financial modelling and analysis capabilities are key components of its recently introduced PensionConnect 360(TM) - ? the industry's first integrated pension system that fully synthesises an organisation's long-term pension strategy with its corporate financial goals.
The integration of pension planning with corporate finances has emerged as the foremost challenge in determining the future health of pension plans, said Jim Morris, senior vice president of SEI's integrated retirement solutions.
This further validates the value of PensionConnect 360(TM) in that process. SEI is pleased to work with PBGC to address the critical issue of pension health.
