Abstract

This contribution provides a description of the governance of US pension funds and its implication for portfolio selection. In a first section, starting with the description of the general governance scheme, we show the difference between defined contribution (DC) and defined benefit (DB) pension funds. In a second session, we examine the consequences of these governance schemes on the investment strategies of pension funds, again stressing the differences between DC and DB funds.
