Pension Funds in Figures
OECD
1 Jun 2018 WORLDWIDE Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Worldwide News
The OECD has published the fourth issue in its 'Pension Funds in Figures' report series, in which it provides a short preview of the characteristics of pension funds in a selection of OECD and non-OECD jurisdictions. This issue gives preliminary data relating to the analysed pension funds for 2017, with the final figures to be published in the 2018 edition of 'Pension Markets in Focus' in October 2018. According to the preliminary figures, pension fund assets in the OECD area grew by more than 11% in 2017, exceeding 56% of OECD-area GDP. The analysis also reveals that the United States held the greatest amount of assets, with assets worth USD 16.2trn, and that the largest increases in total pension fund assets occurred in non-OECD jurisdictions such as Armenia and Malawi, where private pension systems are still a relatively recent development.
