Mercer's pan-European survey shows that six out of 25 pension providers now claim to offer PEP products
Six out of 25 pension providers now claim to offer PEP products
Mercer
9 Oct 2008 Europe (including EU) Pan European Pension Funds, Legislation, European Union members, European Union issues, Taxation
Multinationals are attracted to the benefits of pan-European pension (PEP) arrangements, but the complexity of EU legislation, taxation issues and the perceived lack of products on the market are hampering progress towards their development, according to an industry review carried out by Mercer. The company believes that as companies extend good corporate governance, limit their risk exposure through moves to DC or hybrid structures and look for economies of scale, the opportunities to move towards PEPs will become increasingly attractive, however. Mercer conducted a number of structured interviews and spoke to over 80 multinational organisations headquartered in the US or Europe and 25 pension providers with EU operations for an overview of the status of and attitudes towards the issues, challenges and barriers to PEP provision.

INVESCO European Institutional Asset Management Survey (EIAMS) 2006: Life in medium and small institutions is quite different
INVESCO European Institutional Asset Management Survey (EIAMS) 2006
Invesco
13 Nov 2006 Europe (including EU) Worldwide News, Surpluses and Deficits, Scheme Issues & Trends, Pan European Pension Funds, Investment - Performance, Investment - Management, Investment - General, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, European Union members, Administration
The European Institutional Asset Management Survey (EIAMS) 2006 study confirmed last year’s findings that, in many key areas, it is not the nationality of investors that drives their behaviour so much as their sector or size. For example, absolute performance and level of risk remained the two key investment objectives pursued by European institutional investors in general. But relative return is still very much in demand among small and medium-sized institutions and pension funds.
