Deloitte: Pension deficit at five year low
Deficit of the UK's top 100 companies just ?21bn
The new study found that a quarter of the top 100 firms now have a surplus in
their schemes relative to the value of their accounting liabilities, as a
recovery in the stock market and a fall in the price of bonds cut deficits.
‘For the first time since 2001, we are starting to deal with schemes which
have surpluses,’ said David Robbins, a pensions partner at Deloitte.
