Financial security in retirement is critical for both individuals and societies as most countries are now grappling with the social, economic and financial effects of ageing populations.

In 2020 these issues have been accentuated by COVID-19, but it is not only the pandemic and ageing populations that represent challenges for pension systems around the world. The current economic environment with historically low interest rates, an economic recession in many countries and reduced investment returns are placing additional financial pressures on existing retirement income systems.

Now, more than ever before, the challenges of the time present us with an opportunity to come together as a global community, in order to learn from each other, with the aim of providing retirees with dignity and confidence.
