AEGON survey shows: Multinationals take the lead in driving cross-border pension integration
AEGON
4 Dec 2006 WORLDWIDE, Europe (including EU) Scheme Issues & Trends, Scheme Amendment, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Pension Reform, Multinational Companies, Legislation, European Union members
The complexity of navigating Europe's diverse national pension systems is driving up costs for multinationals in the region, according to the first-ever pensions survey of multinational companies published today by AEGON. The "Bridging Pension Plans Worldwide" survey suggests that the diversity of pension systems across the European Union is making the region less competitive than their global rivals and accelerating the trend towards relocating jobs outside of the European Union.

Dealing with the new giants: rethinking the role of pension funds
Dealing with the new giants: rethinking the role of pension funds
Centre for Economic Policy Research
27 Jul 2006 WORLDWIDE Worldwide News, Surpluses and Deficits, Scheme Issues & Trends, Multinational Companies, Investment - Performance, Investment - Management, Investment - General
According to the eighth ICMB/CEPR Geneva Report on the World Economy, pension funds are becoming the largest institutional investors in global financial markets. They help individuals save for their old age and protect the value of their pensions. In so far as they improve risk sharing along time and across individuals, pension funds may also support innovation and growth in the economy. However, pension funds operate in an environment characterised by a number of serious market imperfections (poor financial education of investors and managers, informational asymmetries in the delegation of saving and portfolio management decisions, imperfect labour markets, and potential supply versus demand imbalances in financial markets).

Employers lack desired control over global retirement benefits strategy
Risk and cost-management concerns more important than supporting employee retirement objectives
Hewitt Associates
26 Oct 2005 WORLDWIDE Multinational Companies, Investment - Management, Investment - General
According to new research by global human resources services firm Hewitt Associates, most multinational employers lack the control they would like over their retirement benefits, and are hampered by the mounting cost of pension schemes and the increasing complexity of government regulation. Hewitt’s study of more than 100 large multinational employers located mainly in Europe and North America found that a surprising number do not have annual objectives (64%) or written global strategies (60%) for their retirement plans. In addition, less than half of companies ranked themselves as “in control” of the following items related to retirement: aligning with business strategies, managing costs, managing risk, optimising processes, enabling their employees and executing globally.
