Case Studies in Retirement System Reform
Case Studies in Retirement System Reform
World Economic Forum
May 2017 Singapore, Netherlands, Japan, United Kingdom, Denmark, Canada Surpluses and Deficits, Savings, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Longevity
The World Economic Forum has published a handbook entitled "Case Studies in Retirement System Reform" which presents 12 case studies on the approaches that governments, pension funds and companies have taken to address the challenges that their own retirement systems face. The report outlines initiatives that have been taken and lessons learned to guide those seeking future pension reforms.

To accompany the handbook, the World Economic Forum has also published a White Paper entitled "We’ll Live to 100 - How Can We Afford It?" which addresses the challenges facing retirement systems, including the impact of ageing societies, and quantifies the size of the savings shortfall. It also provides recommendations for system design and actions for policy-makers to make sure we can adjust to societies in which living to 100 is commonplace and affordable for all.

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

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.
