Ryan ALM Offering
Ryan ALM offers the following products and services to pension plan clients:
For Public and Taft-Hartley Plans – Ryan ALM provides its proprietary Custom Liability Index (CLI), designed to be the proper pension benchmark for liability driven objectives, and its Liability Beta Portfolio (LBP), designed to de-risk a plan through a proprietary method of cash flow matching liabilities. According to Ryan/OMNI, this creates an opportunity to de-risk a plan while reducing costs by as much as 10%.
For Corporate Plans, in addition to the CLI and LBP, Ryan ALM provides a set of discount rates that conforms to ASC 715 and is used by a ‘Big 4’ accounting firm, according to Ryan ALM.
