The report gives an overview of funded and private pension systems worldwide and outlines the latest developments. It monitors the size of assets in funded and private pensions across reporting countries, describes how these pension assets are invested in financial markets, and looks at how investments of these assets performed, both over the last year and over the longer term. The data used to prepare the report have been collected from national authorities within the framework of the OECD s Global Pension Statistics project. The Global Pension Statistics Project (GPS) was launched in 2002 by the OECD Working Party on Private Pensions and its Task Force on Pension Statistics. The GPS provides a valuable means for measuring and monitoring the pension industry. It allows inter-country comparisons of current statistics and indicators on key aspects of retirement systems across OECD and non-OECD countries. Publication Date: 2018
