Pastor’s pension plan: Riding out the economic storm


December 12, 2008

Winnipeg, Man. — Mennonite Church Canada’s pension plan is weathering the economic storm better than some.

So says Bryan Grom of Ardent Financial, the broker for the MC Canada pension plan. Unless plan members specify otherwise, the plan is invested in the Meritas Socially Responsible Asset Allocation Fund.

Grom and Kirsten Schroeder, MC Canada’s Director of Human Resources, are providing opportunities to meet with pension plan members across Canada early in 2009. Schroeder says that with all the negative news about the state of global financial markets, many are concerned about the state of their investments.

The meetings are designed to help plan holders review their level of comfort with risk, and consider decisions plan holders should and should not be making in financially volatile times.
