The 10-year anniversary edition of Pensions at a Glance highlights the pension reforms undertaken by OECD and G20 countries over the last two years. Two special chapters provide deeper analysis of first-tier pension schemes and of the impact of short or interrupted careers, due to late entry into employment, childcare or unemployment, on pension entitlements. Another chapter analyses the sensitivity of long-term pension replacement rates on various parameters. A range of indicators for comparing pension policies and their outcomes between OECD and G20 countries is also provided.

Assets in pension funds and public pension reserve funds

Substantial assets have been accumulated in most OECD countries to help meet future pension liabilities. The weighted average of OECD pension funds’ assets was equal to 83% of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2013. Sixteen OECD countries have also built up public pension reserves to help pay for state pensions. For these countries, public pension reserves were worth nearly 20% of GDP on average.
