Canadian Association of Pension Supervisory Authorities

Leverage Working Group


The mandate of the Leverage Working Group is to:

• Conduct research on Canadian pension plans’ use of leverage strategies (e.g. overlay transactions, derivatives);
• Examine what information on the use of leverage is currently being collected by Canadian pension regulators;
• Review rules, guidance, and reporting requirements of international pension regulators;
• Consider whether information currently collected by Canadian pension regulators is sufficient for identifying plans that are using leverage and how it is being used;
• Consider possible next steps based on analysis; and
• Recommend next steps to CAPSA
