Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index 2009
Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index
Mercer
Oct 2009 United States, Singapore, Sweden, Netherlands, Japan, United Kingdom, Germany, China, Chile, Canada, Australia Worldwide News, State Pensions, Scheme Issues & Trends, Longevity
The Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index presents an approach to objectively compare the retirement income systems in eleven countries spread across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific. The results show that no country’s system has an index value above 80, which represents an A-grade retirement income system. However, four countries have an index value between 65 and 80, which represents a B-grade system and - with some adjustments or improvements - these countries could be re-classified as A-grade systems.

Asian Development Bank
Jul 2009 Viet Nam, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, Malaysia, Korea, Democratic People'S Republic Of, Indonesia, China Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Countries - excl. European Union and US
Working paper No 165 from the Asian Development Bank, entitled "Ageing Asia’s looming pension crisis" and written by Donghyun Park, examines how old-age income support is becoming an issue of growing importance throughout Asia. This paper provides a broad overview of the current state of the pension systems in the People’s Republic of China, Indonesia, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam, and identifies their major structural weaknesses. Key systemic failures were found to be low coverage, inadequate benefits, lack of financial sustainability, and insufficient support for the elderly poor. The paper concludes with some specific policy directions for pension reform to strengthen the capacity of Asian pension systems in delivering economic security for the growing number of the elderly in the region.

Ageing Asia must face its pension problems
Pensions in Asia/Pacific
OECD
7 Jan 2008 Viet Nam, Pakistan, Philippines, Japan, India, Indonesia, China, Australia Scheme Issues & Trends, Savings, Investment - General, Countries - excl. European Union and US
An OECD/World Bank report which analyses the retirement income systems of 18 Asian countries, says that to prepare for the rapid population ageing forecast over the next two decades, it is vital to act now to avoid future problems and repeating many of the mistakes made in Europe and North America. The report says that reform is needed because coverage of formal pension systems is relatively low, withdrawal of savings before retirement is very common, pension savings are often taken as lump sums and often do not provide people with adequate income over their lifetime and pensions payments are not automatically adjusted to reflect changes in the cost of living.

Collective Pension Funds: International Evidence and Implications for China's Enterprise Annuities Reform
OECD Working Paper 9
OECD
Aug 2007 China Investment - General, Countries - excl. European Union and US, Annuities and Income Drawdown
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development has published its 9th working paper on insurance and private pensions, "Collective Pension Funds: International Evidence and Implications for China's Enterprise Annuities Reform", by Yu-Wei Hu, Colin Pugh, Fiona Stewart and Juan Yermo. In this report, the authors first describe and analyse how CPFs are operated in selected OECD countries and non-OECD economies. Then, they review occupational pensions (EAs in China) in general and CPFs in particular. Given the problems holding back the development of EA plans among small and medium size enterprises (SMEs) in China, and bearing in mind both China's specific situations and international best practices, they propose a number of policy recommendations to promote the development of CPFs covering the SME sector. Their practical policy recommendations include: 1) industry funds with more open membership; 2) establishment of new purpose-built industry funds; 3) establishment of new regional EA administration centres acting as independent pension councils (trustees) for open pension funds; 4) in parallel to these policy initiatives in China, commercial trustees should be encouraged to establish CPFs targeting the SME sector.

An American perspective on the Chinese pension system
China’s underfunded retirement system a potential weakness
Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI)
Aug 2006 China Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Countries - excl. European Union and US
Findings from the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) have found that for all its rapid economic and military growth, China may have a crucial weakness in its grossly underfunded retirement system for the largest national population on earth. Currently, the implicit pension debt in China is around $1.5 trillion, a liability that primarily rests on the country’s 31 provinces. China, which generally limits each family to one child, has a rapidly declining ratio of workers to retirees: from 6 to 1 in 2000 to 2 to 1 in 2040. Only 50% of urban workers and 11% of rural workers are paying into the current Chinese social security system.
