ACTSC 445: Asset-Liability Management – Fall 2008 Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science, University of Waterloo Unit 7 – Dedicated Bond Portfolio: A Case Study References (recommended readings): Chap. 48 of Fabozzi. In this unit, we use an example based on a pension plan to illustrate the use of a dedicated bond portfolio for cash flow matching. The liabilities in this example are taken to be the expected benefit payouts to a closed block of current retirees, and a 35-year schedule is used. A few notes on liabilities: Liability obligations must be projected accurately. Sometimes, terminated vested participants (former employees who are vested in the pension plan and are entitled to benefit payouts commencing sometime in the future) are also included, and also active partcipants over the age of 50. When this is the case, various mortality, termination, and benefit assumptions must be reviewed periodically. The following table is an excerpt of the schedule of expected benefit payouts for this example (Exhibit 48-1 in Fabozzi).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
