Pension planning in the United States has gained importance with the population aging and the growth of retirement accounts. In certain cases, the pension plan assets are several times larger than the value of the company itself (General Motors - Market cap: $19 billion, Pension plan assets: $67 billion, Estimated pension fund deficit: $25 billion - in December 31, 2002; see General Motors Corporation (2003)). Thus, pension investment decisions can have a sizeable impact on a company's long-term financial health. However, pension planning is rarely linked to general corporate planning systems since the domain falls outside traditional corporate budgeting and planning processes.
