Risk avoidance and volatility are the top priorities for pension plan sponsors, according to an international SEI survey of 305 executives who oversee pension plans with $30 million to more than $5 billion in assets. Nearly two-thirds (62%) said the desire to maintain current returns outweighs the potential for portfolio gains from speculative investments; a sharp rise from the 54% who voiced that opinion in a similar survey last year. That feeling was most prevalent at U.S. plans with more than $1 billion in assets; 76% of participants in that category said their organizations would not take on more active risk in an effort to increase returns.
