Annual Survey of Investment Regulation of Pension Funds
OECD
18 Jul 2019 WORLDWIDE Investment - General, Worldwide News
The OECD has published the 2019 edition of its annual survey examining the quantitative investment regulations to which pension funds are subject in OECD countries and a selection of non-OECD countries. The survey found that only nine of the countries analysed, including the United Kingdom, do not place a ceiling upon pension fund investment for the selection of asset classes examined, with investments in equities capped in most countries and a number of countries either limiting or entirely forbidding investment in real estate, private investment funds or loans.

The New Social Contract: Empowering individuals in a transitioning world
Aegon Retirement Readiness Survey 2019
AEGON
May 2019 United Kingdom, WORLDWIDE Annuities and Income Drawdown, Longevity, Savings, State Pensions
Aegon has published its eighth annual Retirement Readiness Survey, in which it analyses how prepared individuals are for retirement and recommends a New Social Contract for retirement based upon its findings. The 2019 survey reveals that 68% is the proportion of current income workers think they will need in retirement but only 25% of today's workers believe that they are on course to achieve their retirement income. The survey also highlights that there has been little improvement in retirement readiness among workers as measured by the Aegon Retirement Readiness Index (ARRI), which in 2019 was 6.0, only slightly higher than the score of 5.2 recorded in 2012.

Growth assets of pension funds and retirement adequacy and sustainability
Asset Allocation of Pension Funds
Australian Centre for Financial Studies (ACFS)
Apr 2019 WORLDWIDE Countries - excl. European Union and US, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Investment - General, Investment - Performance, Surpluses and Deficits
The Australian Centre for Financial Studies (ACFS) has published a report, based on the data collected by the Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index project from 2009 to 2018, examining whether the level of assets allocated to growth assets by pension funds of a pension system has any association with its adequacy and sustainability. In terms of adequacy of pension systems, the report found that countries with a very high allocation of pension assets to growth asset classes do not have high net replacement rate, a key indicator of retirement adequacy. The report also found that in terms of sustainability of pension systems, there is a positive relationship between the level of growth assets and the overall size of pension assets.

The green investor: why institutional investing holds the key to a renewable energy future
Octopus Group
11 Feb 2019 WORLDWIDE Investment - Ethical and SRI
The Octopus Group has published its first Renewable Energy Investment report, titled "The green investor: why institutional investing holds the key to a renewable future". In the report, the Octopus Group analyses what drives institutional investors including pension funds to make investments in renewable energy, and identifies the "roadblocks" that prevent them from making further investments in the sector. According to the research, institutional investors are looking to increase their investment allocations in renewable energy markets. Nearly half of the 67% surveyed that are already invested in the sector are looking to increase the size of their investments by up to 10% over the next five years, with pension funds planning to increase their allocations from 4.8% to 7.8%.
