About the Poll
The MetLife 2019 Pension Risk Transfer Poll was fielded between August 13, 2018 and September 27, 2018. MetLife commissioned MMR Research Associates, Inc. to conduct the online survey in cooperation with Strategic Insight, which owns PLANSPONSOR and CIO magazines. Survey responses were received from 102 defined benefit (DB) plan sponsors with de-risking goals. This included 52% of plan sponsors who reported DB plan assets of $500 million or more, and 48% with DB plans that are at least 90% funded (including 21% that are fully funded). The full report examining these findings is available at: www.metlife.com/prtpoll2019.
