David Morgan: Pension Funds Reel From Negative Yields

A once-unthinkable collapse in global bond yields is forcing pension funds to buy bonds that offer negative returns -- putting the financial security of future retirees in major jeopardy. 

U.S. Institutions managing trillions of dollars in retirement savings have been ratcheting down return expectations. 

Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund, the world’s largest, has warned that money managers risk losses across asset classes. Europe pension funds are being forced to cut benefits in part thanks to the decline in rates. 

Do you think we're immune here in the U.S.? Think again!
