Investment risk and private pensions

Although private pension funds in OECD countries have, on average, now recovered all of the pre-crisis losses the markets are still volatile and negative growth is still not uncommon. However, it is important to bear in mind that private pensions are only a part of the overall retirement-income package: a major part of retirement income is generally not affected by investment risk. In some countries, means-tested pensions protect low-income workers from much investment risk and the tax system can also acts as an automatic stabiliser of retirement incomes.
