This first edition of the OECD Private Pensions Outlook provides essential data on assets, investments, membership, and industry structure based on the latest official statistics, as well as a framework for evaluating the trends shaping the pensions industry, based on the role of the private pensions in relation to the public pension system. It also provides comprehensive country profiles, describing private pension arrangements in individual OECD countries. This edition's special feature covers the implications for pensions and private pensions policy of the financial crisis.

Reader's Guide

The OECD Working Party on Private Pensions and its Task Force on Pension Statistics launched the Global Pension Statistics project (GPS) in 2002. The GPS intends to provide a valuable device for measuring and monitoring the pension industry, and permit intercountry comparisons of current statistics and indicators on key aspects of retirement systems across OECD and non-OECD countries. Data are collected on an ongoing basis so that trends can be readily identified and analysed. The statistics cover an extensive range of indicators and relate to a wide definition of private pension plans (see below OECD classification), themselves subdivided into detailed categories using coherent statistical concepts, definitions and methodologies.
