Should Icelandic pension funds hedge currency risk in their foreign investments?” by Asgeir Daníelsson (Working Papner No. 65, August 2014, .pdf format, 30p.).

Abstract:

This paper discusses efficient hedging of currency risk in foreign investments through short term forward contracts. It is shown that for long term investors the efficient level of currency hedging depends on the behaviour of the exchange rate. If the exchange rate follows random walk the efficient hedging of the currency risk may be as large as it is for the short term investor, or possibly larger, but if the exchange rate follows a stationary stochastic process efficient hedging of the long term currency risk through short term forward contracts is zero in most cases. It is also shown that pass through of changes in the exchange rate into inflation forms a partial hedge for an investor that considers the real return and its volatility rather than the nominal return, diminishing the efficient level of forward currency contracts. It is shown that it is possible to use forward currency contracts for speculative investments. These contracts are profitable investment opportunities if the interest rate di¤erential exceeds the expected change in the exchange rate. This same condition motivated the carry trade.

Private Defined Benefit Pension Plans in the U.S. National Accounts: Accrual Measures for the 2013 Comprehensive Revision,” by Dylan G. Rassier (August 2014, .pdf format, 33p.).

With the comprehensive revision of the U.S. National Income and Product Accounts published in July 2013, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis introduced new accrual-based measures of income generated by defined benefit (DB) pension plans. In addition to the improved measurement, BEA introduced a new DB pension subsector and a new set of tables that provide a complete picture of transactions conducted in the DB pension subsector. Separate tables were introduced for each sector of employers that sponsor DB plans: business or private sector, state and local government sector, and federal government sector. This paper summarizes the methodology for each of the estimated series included in the table for DB plans sponsored by business or private sector employers (i.e., private plans). In addition, the paper provides general background information on DB pension plans and summarizes the DB pension subsector and the related table for private DB plans.
