Pension & Retirement
Building a better retirement world
The rapidly aging world population and focus on long-term liabilities create an urgent priority for governments to address social security, pension and retirement funding and an opportunity for providers to help secure the well-being of billions.
Growing demographic transformation, lower-than-expected investment returns and a focus on liabilities are forcing governments, public and private sector pension funds, public and private employers and financial services organizations to find and implement better approaches. In many countries, pension and retirement assets have become the largest source of wealth or a huge potential liability. Private equity, real estate and infrastructure increasingly use pension and retirement assets as a funding source.
At EY, we build a better working world by supporting governments, public and private sector pension and retirement plans as well as public and corporate employers and their providers as they address this challenge — from formulating policy and strategy to growing and transforming pension and retirement systems, solutions, investment outcomes and business. We help organizations address the needs of their stakeholders more effectively through:
- Better governance
- Improved customer service and enhanced digital experiences
- Transformed investment outcomes
- Modernized technology
- Greater efficiency along the value chain
Our teams of government and public sector, financial services, actuarial, pension and retirement resources understand the language and the issues. We are involved at all stages of the value chain, from working with governments, regulators and public and corporate employers, to advising schemes on governance, investments and operations, to helping organizations refine the way they deal with customers.
By asking the right questions and resolving the important issues, we aim to build a better working world and help improve the financial well-being of billions of people.
