6. Main policy guidelines to strengthen asset-backed pension systems in a post-COVID-19 world

This publication has examined the impact of COVID-19 on asset-backed pension arrangements. It has also looked at the different policies implemented and has examined their success and alignment with the main OECD policy messages. The analysis has also looked at the impact of the pandemic on mortality and the potential implication for future mortality improvements, as well as on how assets earmarked for retirement can support economies and benefit members in a post-COVID-19 world.

This final chapter presents the main policy guidelines learnt during the COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath with a view to providing guidance to policy makers to move forward and to be able to face similar crises in the future.
