A Stochastic Network Approach for Integrating Pension and Corporate Financial Planning

This paper presents a multi-period stochastic network model for integrating corporate financial and pension planning. 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 (e.g. 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)).
