NEW YORK, March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CAMRADATA Analytical Services today released a new white paper: "The Case for Pension Risk Transfer." The paper will be featured in the March issue of PLANSPONSOR magazine.
"The Case for Pension Risk Transfer" explains why an upsurge in PRT products is expected in the U.S. and why removing DB pension liabilities is not as expensive as most plan sponsors have been led to believe.
The paper's release follows CAMRADATA's recent launch of the first database to provide a comprehensive view of the U.S. PRT market.
Steve Keating, Managing Director of CAMRADATA's international business, said: "The number of plan sponsors and advisors signing up to use the PRT database has already been strong. Access and use of the database is free for plan sponsors and their advisors. The new white paper may encourage more of them to register and use it.
"We saw a need for an industry-wide database to put all of the relevant PRT information in one place. CAMRADATA, which already had a well-established platform for institutional pension and investment products, was ideally suited to meet this objective."
CAMRADATA's PRT database allows users to obtain market data and research PRT products available from participating providers and to request quotes. It also features a new PRT Index designed to gauge when it is a relatively favorable time to execute a PRT transaction.
