Measuring Performance

Our reporting enables the plan sponsor to accurately monitor ongoing results vs. objectives. This reporting is delivered via a secure client portal so that plan sponsors have “on-demand” access to comprehensive data and analysis.

 

MONTHLY REPORTING

On a monthly basis, we provide a comprehensive accounting report package for any combination of funding strategies.

For corporate-owned life insurance (COLI) and mutual funds, our reporting includes:

  • valuation reports of plan assets and liabilities
  • journal entries for plan assets and liabilities
  • trade activity reports
  • funding adequacy analysis
  • comprehensive financial and tax reporting

For a total return swap (TRS), our reporting includes:

  • detailed tax recordkeeping, to enable deferral of TRS gains
  • financing/equity components
  • correlation/tracking error and performance attribution analysis
  • income statement and balance sheet reports

 

QUARTERLY REPORTING

On a quarterly basis, we provide a proprietary investment review that includes:

  • a review of the capital markets
  • a review of current asset allocation
  • review and benchmarking of investment manager performance
  • a forecast of plan contributions and distributions, and evaluation of funding adequacy
  • an evaluation of the performance of the plan assets and liabilities to quantify the impact of market volatility on company earnings

 

ANNUAL REPORTING

Annually, we provide reporting to:

  • quantify product expense (COLI)
  • evaluate tax efficiency (whether funded with COLI, mutual funds, or TRS)
    • fund-level distributions, including capital gains and dividends
    • inter-fund turnover, based on participant activity
  • quantify the tax efficiency of asset/liability management and tax-efficient trading protocols (“tax alpha”)
  • provide correlation analysis to monitor tracking error between assets and liabilities
    • quantify the impact of market volatility on company earnings
  • monitor key plan metrics
    • participation rates
    • deferral rates
    • participant investment elections
    • projected participant distribution and liquidity requirements
