  9. Pensions’ adequacy

  10. Pension systems in Europe : adequacy of pension revenue Data Source : OECD Pensions at a glance 2011

  11. Pension systems in Europe : adequacy of pension revenue • Longer life expectancy and falling birth rates: • How to address the problem of under-provision in retirement? According to a study, across the EU, the annual pensions gap stands at €1 900bn (or 19% of 2010 GDP). The most affected countries would be the UK (€12 300 per capita each year) and Germany (€11 600/cap.) This analysis also reveals that no single reform can close the gap completely on its own; non pension-assets may only fill as little as 20% of the pensions gap. (Source: Aviva)

Multi-Pillar systems are the solution • No pillar on its own can respond to the challenges of the coming decades • Multiple pillar systems allow for better distribution of the risks (demographic vs economic) • Possible to distinguish between the goals of poverty reduction and income replacement • Pension reforms decreasing first pillar pension pay-outs could be countered by additional supplementary retirement income
