There are pension funds, and pension funds....

I have a defined contribution pension plan at work. There is no matching. The fund is a minor portion of my NW. Its asset allocation is 60% equities, 39% fixed income, 1% cash and returned 11.8% last year. When I RE I will have the option of keeping these funds where they are or rolling them into my RRSP. Either way, they are pretax funds. So the management strength of the pension fund will be a major factor in this decision. Luckily I have several years to compare performance.

Pension funds are no longer the fuddy duddy investors they used to be.

Now that big pension funds are stretching their muscle as private equity firms, how should their performance be judged? How will they affect the market for private investors?
