    Abstract

    Drawing on the experience of the pensions and other financial sectors, this paper examines what sort of risk-management framework pension funds should have in place. Such frameworks are broken down into four main categories: management oversight and culture; strategy and risk assessment; control systems; and information and reporting. Ways in which supervisory authorities can check that such systems are operating are also considered, with a check list provided to assist pension supervisory authorities with their oversight of this important area. Cadre pour la gestion des risques des fonds de pension : réglementation et surveillance A partir de l’expérience du secteur des retraites et des autres activités financières, ce document examine le type de cadre de gestion des risques dont devraient être dotés les fonds de pension. Un tel cadre devrait reposer sur quatre grands piliers : surveillance de la gestion et culture de gestion ; stratégie et évaluation des risques ; systèmes de contrôle ; information et reporting. Ce document traite également des modalités de surveillance de ces systèmes par les instances de supervision et il contient une liste de référence à l’intention des autorités compétentes à l’égard des organismes de retraite.
