<p>BRAINTREE, Mass., <chron>Oct. 8</chron> /CNW/ -- MIB Solutions, Inc. has been chosen by the Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) to perform a first-of-its-kind study of Canadian pension plans for the purposes of establishing pension mortality tables that uniquely reflect the Canadian pension industry's recent experience. This is the latest in a series of initiatives to promote the CIA's advocacy position for preserving and strengthening Canada's pension system. The study's findings are anticipated to provide a benchmark by which pension plans can better gauge actual-to-expected performance of current pension strategies to fine tune gaps. Each participating pension plan and plan administrator will receive a summary of its own mortality experience compared to the aggregate.</p>
<p>"From data call to final deliverable, MIB's enterprise-class infrastructure, stringent security protocols and expertise have set the standard for actuarial mortality experience studies," said Stacy J. Gill, MIB Solutions' Vice President of Actuarial and Statistical Research. "We very much appreciate the CIA's confidence in our ability to perform this critical research."</p>
<p>"The Canadian pension industry can feel confident that with MIB's many years of experience conducting mortality studies, their interests and the public's will be well served," said <person>Robert Howard</person>, President of the Canadian Institute of Actuaries.</p>
