Réglementation des retraites privées : le cas du Royaume-Uni

Abstract

[eng] Regulation of private pensions : a case study of the UK . There are three economic justifications to the regulation of pension funds : information assymetries, a too important market power, and externalities (due to systemic risk). In this article, the author thinks that the English regulation is adequate. . Classification JEL : G23, G28 [fre] Il commence par analyser les fondements économiques d’une telle régulation qui sont principalement de trois types : les asymétries d’information entre épargnants et gestionnaires des fonds ; le risque d’un pouvoir de marché excessif des fonds, notamment lorsque les contributions sont obligatoires ; et les externalités, essentiellement les risques systémiques en cas de défaillance d’un ou de plusieurs fonds, ces risques étant beaucoup plus importants dans les régimes de retraites à prestations définies. Philip Davis considère que, dans l’ensemble, le dispositif actuel de régulation des fonds de pension privés au Royaume-Uni fonctionne d’une manière satisfaisante dans la mesure où un équilibre semble avoir été trouvé entre les coûts de cette régulation pour les fonds de pension et les avantages de celle-ci du point de vue de la protection des épargnants. . Classification JEL : G23, G28
