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.

Germans trust friends while Britons seek independent advice on life and pensions
Faster provision of information and achieving single customer view are goals for success
Datamonitor
May 2007 United Kingdom, Germany Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, European Union members, Advisers
A survey of the UK and German life insurance and pensions markets, conducted by Datamonitor and commissioned by IBM, has revealed discord between consumer preference, the power held by Independent Financial Advisers (IFAs) and insurance providers’ customer retention strategies, including admissions that customers take "second place". The research was conducted among 200 consumers, eight life insurance providers and 14 IFAs/brokers divided equally across the two countries. 41%, a majority of German consumers, are closer to their life and pensions provider because they buy direct; however, in the UK, 40% of consumers buy these products through their workplace. IFAs own a large share of the market in both countries.

OECD urges Germany to help older people to remain active
OECD urges Germany to help older people to remain active
OECD
22 Nov 2005 Germany Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement
 A new report by  the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has said that Germany needs to reform its employment policies  to help older people who wish to continue working to do so. Many Germans retire before the age of 65 meaning that only two out of five people aged 55-64 are employed; a considerably lower ratio than in other OECD countries. This report recommends ways in which the German government can introduce further reform to avoid labour shortages and a slowing of economic growth.

Pension Arrangements and Retirement Choices in Europe: A Comparison of the British, Danish and German Systems
An exploration of how different state benefit systems affect the labour supply of older workers
Centre for European Policy Studies
Feb 2005 United Kingdom, Denmark, Germany State Pensions, European Union issues
This paper develops a general equilibrium simulation model of a heterogeneous population in which both consumption/saving and labour/leisure choices are endogenous. In broad terms, they find that differences in labour force participation can be accounted for by the differences in benefit structures. These conclusions are not altered when they allow for the effects of poor health at different ages. The UK system is found to be preferable by young persons while the German arrangement is preferred by old and older people (who make up the majority in the simulated population).
