“Pension Accounting and Firm Value: A Dynamic Analysis”
This study investigates the association between published pension accounting information and the market value of a sample of UK listed FTSE 100 companies. The research uses dynamic and static panel analysis and provides evidence that pension accounting information is value relevant although results vary according to the method of quantitative analysis adopted and overall, pension accounting information is found to be less value relevant than other accounting information whichever method of quantitative analysis is used. Further research is justified to build on the contributions of this study and continue the investigation into the value relevance of pension accounting disclosures as this subject has wider policy implications.
