European Commission
22 Jun 2010 Europe (including EU) Savings, Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General, European Union members, European Union issues
The EU Commission has published a new Eurobarometer survey on the social impacts of the current financial crisis.

Meanwhile, 20% are very concerned that their income in retirement will be insufficient for them to live a decent life, and 34% are fairly worried by this outlook. In 17 Member States, a majority of respondents are very or fairly worried that their income in old age will not be adequate to enable them to live in dignity.

Privately managed funded pension provision
European Commission
20 Oct 2008 Europe (including EU) Scheme Issues & Trends, Pension Reform, Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, European Union members, European Union issues
A new study released by the European Commission confirms the trend towards more private pension provision in the EU but highlights the need for inclusive coverage and adequate pension levels. The study identifies large variations in coverage and contribution levels between EU countries, reflecting the diversity of schemes in place. The analysis aims to help EU countries learn from different national experiences under the "open method of coordination" - the EU's system of common objectives, reporting and exchange of best practice.

Ageing costs: cut deficits and reform pensions now to leave a sustainable legacy for our children tomorrow
Long-term sustainability of public finances in the European Union
European Commission
12 Oct 2006 Europe (including EU) Welfare Reform, State Pensions, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Investment - General, European Union members, European Union issues
Achieving balanced budgets in the medium-term would enable the EU Member States to face up to the daunting pension costs of an ageing population with much more confidence. If this goal is achieved, the EU average debt-to-GDP ratio would increase from today’s 63% to about 80% by 2050 instead of almost 200% on current policies, according to a report on the Long-Term Sustainability of Public Finances in the EU. It shows that Member States with high budgetary imbalances and significant projected increases in age-related expenditure are more at risk than others. But coping with the budgetary impact of ageing is a key policy challenge for the EU as whole. The answer lies in reducing public debts, raising employment rates and improving productivity while pursuing reform of pension, health care and long-term care systems.

State of financial integration
Progress in integrating European markets
European Commission
May 2004 Europe (including EU) European Union issues
The European Commission has published for open consultation reports by four independent groups of experts on the state of financial integration in the banking, insurance, securities and asset management sectors. The reports, which reflect the consensus view of the group members, provide a comprehensive assessment of the extent to which different types of financial business can be undertaken on a pan European basis. They also outline the main expectations and concerns of the different sectors regarding the implementation and enforcement of Financial Services Action Plan (FSAP) legislation. They set out recommendations for harnessing the full potential of FSAP measures and identify specific areas where the single financial market can be further enhanced through a combination of self regulation, supervisory cooperation and, in some limited cases, additional EU level policy intervention.
