TORONTO VIA NEW YORK (11/15/18) —
The funded status of The Segal Group’s model multi-employer pension plan (MEPP) increased by 3 percentage points to 102 percent.
“The Canadian equity market had a slightly negative quarter as the Energy and Materials sectors fell,” said Ruo Tan, President of Segal Rogerscasey Canada. “U.S. equities continued to have positive returns in Q3, supported by record high corporate earnings, strong consumer spending and the lowest unemployment rate since 1970.”
Segal also noted that there was an increase in actual hours worked year over year for all industries combined and each industry listed below.
“Hours continue to be strong,” said Cameron McNeill, Segal’s Canadian Business Leader, “but there is a need to be careful when projecting forward.”
