Andy Pettit and Lia Mitchell
About this talk
Every year, millions of people around the world leave the workforce and enter retirement. However, in a world full of uncertainty, retirement income security has become a critical issue. Now more than ever, the quality of retirement income schemes around the world are being question on whether they can provide a sufficient retirement for employees.
In our first international look at retirement frameworks, we focus on the features of workplace retirement schemes in eight countries spanning the Americas, Europe, and Asia. We also examine the extent in which workplace retirement schemes help to provide secure and cost-effective investment frameworks for employees to generate retirement income.
