CAN PENSION SYSTEMS KEEP DELIVERING?
The provision of financial security in retirement is critical for individuals and societies as most countries are now grappling with social, economic and financial effects of ageing populations. The major causes of demographic shift are declining birth rates and increasing longevity, which are placing financial pressure on pension systems. The Melbourne Mercer Global Pension index, now in its seventh year, provides a comparison of the many and varied systems around the world. This year the index also analyses trends in sustainability indicators over recent years.
