An analysis and ranking of 44 pension systems around the world
The results are in: Iceland leads, but only by a margin
The Mercer CFA Institute Global Pension Index benchmarks 44 retirement income systems around the world, highlighting challenges and opportunities within each. This year we have added Portugal to the mix, as well as using updated data from OECD and the UN World Population Prospects 2022.
The index is made up of three sub-indices (adequacy, sustainability and integrity) to measure each retirement income system against more than 50 indicators. This year’s special chapter unpacks the challenging defined contribution (DC) equation of converting a DC lump sum into a good outcome for retirees.
