Periodic Pension Cost

What does “set equal to discount rate” mean?

 Under IFRS, P&L incorporates a return on plan assets set equal to the discount rate used in estimating the pension obligation

"Using Wiley for my CFA journey was by far the best option… I was able to pass on my first attempt.”– Moe E., Canada

Under IFRS, the expected return on plan assets must be equal to the discount rate for plan liabilities.

If you use a 7.3% discount rate for plan liabilities, you must use a 7.3% rate for the expected return on plan assets.

Simplify the complicated side; don't complify the simplicated side.
