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).

Cross Border Portability of Pension Rights
Conditions for an Integrated Market for Pension Provision
Centre for European Policy Studies
May 2004 Europe (including EU) European Union issues
The portability of pension rights across EU member states remains subject to a number of administrative, social and financial barriers. Incompatibility of pension schemes is a major headache for human resource managers throughout Europe and affects the mobility of the labour force. With financial support from the European Commission, the researcher organised an exploratory workshop in 2003 to stimulate discussion among experts, formulate proposals for legislative action and establish a research agenda to influence progress on this important issue. These workshop proceedings summarise the contributions made by participants at the conference and offer links to key papers in the field.

Population Ageing and International Capital Flows
Population Ageing and International Capital Flows
Centre for European Policy Studies
Oct 2003 WORLDWIDE Miscellaneous
This paper reviews the existing evidence on the role of international capital markets in an ageing world,  looking at the differences across countries in demographic transitions and the factors behind the process of demographic changes. It discusses how the different factors underlying the ageing process influence the balance between national savings and investment and takes a closer look at the different elements of the current account: savings, investment and the government budget. It also addresses possible policy responses to ageing and their effect on international capital flows. The paper also considers the empirical evidence about capital mobility and the possibility that capital will flow from North to South (and back). Further, it studies the effects of a lower (or higher) interest rate on the effectiveness of savings enhancing policies, using the example of the funded pension system of the Netherlands.

Competition, Fragmentation and Transparency: Providing the Regulatory Framework for Fair, Dynamic and Efficient European Securities Markets
What recommended transparency requirements to impose on competitors to exchanges
Centre for European Policy Studies
Apr 2003 Europe (including EU) Investment - General
This report provides an in-depth analysis of (i) the history of the EU investment services regime, (ii) the changes to securities trading structures during recent decades, and (iii) the fundamentals of regulating securities trading. Based on this broad-ranging analysis, the research highlights the dangers of mandating too ambitious levels of detailed transparency requirements and instead proposes to put the emphasis on other methods for ensuring investor protection and market integrity, notably best-execution, conduct of business and post-trade transparency rules.

Pan-European Asset Management: Achievements and Regulatory Impediments
Review of the asset management industry throughout Europe
Centre for European Policy Studies
Apr 2003 Europe (including EU) Investment - Management
Four years into EMU, the asset management industry throughout Europe remains fragmented along national lines. Although European capital markets integration and industry consolidation have affected the industry, large differences remain from one country to another in the strength of institutional investors, in the asset allocation patterns and in the size of investment funds. These differences thwart asset management firms from exploiting scale economies and prevent consumers from getting better returns on investment products, a broader choice and lower costs. This report seeks to identify policy initiatives that can be taken to overcome the market fragmentation.
