2014 Global Retirement Savings Conference
17–18 June 2014
The 2014 Global Retirement Savings Conference was held 17–18 June 2014, in Geneva, Switzerland. Featuring senior pension executives and experts as well as regulators and policymakers from around the world, the event focused on how different countries are responding to global retirement savings challenges and how investment funds—as part of defined contribution plans—can help meet those challenges.
More than 80 people from 12 countries and five continents attended the conference. Attendees participated in discussions about:
- the role of regulators and governments in building retirement resources;
- global differences in investors’ attitudes toward saving and investing;
- the use of default funds in different countries; and
- routes to delivering sustainable outcomes.
