The Partnership

The Canadian Institute of Actuaries (CIA) retained the services of Fiera Capital Investment Management Inc. to produce, on a monthly basis, Fiera Capital's CIA Method Accounting Discount Rate Curve that can be used by sponsors to select the appropriate accounting discount rate to value pension and other post-employment benefit plan liabilities.

Our Approach

Fiera Capital's calculation guidelines for preparing the Fiera Capital's CIA Method Accounting Discount Rate Curve can be found in the Methodology section and was derived from the Canadian Institute of Actuaries' official document “Educational Note, Accounting Discount Rate Assumption for Pension and Post-Employment Benefit Plans”. This document can be found at: .
