    Abstract

    The role of private pensions in the provision of retirement income has grown significantly in the past two decades, reflecting efforts by many countries to trim down unsustainable pay-as-you-go benefits. The role of private provision of retirement income is visible in countries with mature defined benefit private pension plans, as well as in countries that have introduced a mandatory private pillar as part of a systemic pension reform. This report seeks to develop a comparative study on the regulation of private pension systems across a range of countries, with a particular focus on the major systems in Latin America and the Caribbean, and Central and Eastern Europe, as well as selected high income OECD countries. It contains individual country profiles that provide detailed information on each country‘s private pension system. Each country report includes information on members´ participation; contribution rates, asset management, investment regulations, asset valuation and investment return regulations. Description des systèmes de pension privés Le rôle des pensions privées comme source de revenu au moment de la retraite s‘est beaucoup accru au cours des deux dernières décennies, reflétant en cela les efforts déployés par de nombreux pays pour réduire des prestations financièrement non tenables dans le cadre de la répartition. Le rôle des pensions privées à cet égard est visible tant dans les pays à plans de pension privés à prestations définies matures que dans les pays qui se sont dotés d‘un pilier privé obligatoire dans le cadre d‘une réforme systémique des pensions. Dans ce rapport, on tente de présenter une étude comparative de la réglementation des systèmes de pension privés dans différents pays, en particulier concernant les grands systèmes d‘Amérique latine et des Caraïbes, ainsi que l‘Europe centrale et orientale et un certain nombre de pays de l‘OCDE à haut revenu. Le rapport présente des profils par pays qui donnent des informations détaillées sur le système des pensions privées dans chaque pays. Chaque rapport par pays fournit des informations sur le nombre des adhérents, les taux de cotisation, la gestion des actifs, la réglementation des investissements, la valorisation des actifs et les règles en matière de rendement.
