The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) is considering requiring corporations to provide more details about pension plan allocations, including alternative investments. FASB says it is responding to shareholder demands for more transparency so they can better gauge portfolio risks. At a meeting Feb. 13, the FASB board directed staff members to draw up proposed amendments to FAS 132 (Employers’ Disclosures about Pensions and other Post-Retirement Benefits) that would compel companies to list pension fund assets by categories, such as stocks, bonds and alternative investments, such as collateralized debt obligations (CDOs).
