Expected Investment Income
How are investment income calculated for the projection?
Registered funds are projected in the future based on the rates selected in the Economic Forecast on the Forecast page, and the asset allocation selected on the Options page.
If you base your projection on the current asset mix, then you should enter the asset allocation of registered assets by clicking the blue icon next to the 'Registered' balance on the second tab of the
Financial Information page. In setting your rate for fixed income consider that part of the assets will earn 8% on the mortgages and part will earn a lower rate for mutual fund investments, bonds, etc.
Also recognize that the expected rates may apply for 30 to 50 years in the future, so it is best to use a conservative approach and consider that rates that may be guaranteed for
the next few years may not apply for the entire life expectancy.
