A pension plan is a fund that is established by private employers, governments, or unions for the payment of retirement benefits. Qualified pension funds are exempt from income taxes, as are employer contributions. Taking this initial information into account, you are required to design a pension plan portfolio where you discuss the types of financial products that are going to be included in the portfolio (equity, securities, commodities, debt, etc.). Justify your answer. (Hint: You are required to look into pension funds’ performance during the Global Financial Crisis, with the aim of identifying compositions that led towards pension plans underperformance during the financial turmoil. In addition, you are required to consider risk profiles and their impact in the composition of your generic plan).
