Financial derivatives, such as futures, forwards and swaps, are used to gain or eliminate exposure to an asset class or market. Voya's Liability Driven Investing approach offers extensive pension diagnostic capabilities and solutions that address the challenges and obligations facing sponsors of defined benefit plans. By creating a liability benchmark portfolio comprised of interest rate swaps or futures, Voya can closely match the interest rate sensitivity and other characteristics of the pension liability. By combining a liability matching fixed income solution with a portable alpha strategy, Voya seeks to produce the higher expected returns needed to reduce long-term costs, while providing a higher correlation of assets to liabilities to reduce short-term volatility.
