Summary Description

High-level principles for the regulation of occupational (and other private) pension systems, covering pension funds and other financing mechanisms for pension arrangements.

Detailed Description

The Core Principles aim to achieve more efficient regulation and management of private pension plans, with a focus on company-based and occupational arrangements. The Core Principles, which are non-binding, cover seven key areas: conditions for effective regulation and supervision; the establishment of pension entities; their funding and asset management; the protection of member and beneficiaries' rights; and how funds should be governed and supervised.

 

 

Assessment Methodology

 

Description The Methodology provides a structured approach for evaluating a jurisdiction's occupational pension regulatory system in relation to the Core Principles. The Methodology may also be used for evaluating personal pension plans that are secured via pension funds.
