13/11/2015 - Pension funds experienced strong performance during 2014, with total assets under management in the OECD topping USD 25 trillion for the first time. Traditional asset classes (bills and bonds, equities and cash and deposits) remain predominant in the portfolios of pension funds. A special feature examines the extent to which data available show whether pension funds are involved in a “search for yield”.

About Pension Markets in Focus

Recent years have witnessed intense pension reform efforts in countries around the globe, often involving an increased use of funded pension programmes managed by the private sector. These funded arrangements are likely to play an increasingly important role in delivering retirement income in many countries and privately managed pension assets will play an increasing role in financial markets, notably as a source of long-term savings.


Published annually, Pension Markets in Focus provides accurate, comprehensive, comparable and up-to-date statistics to help policy makers, regulators and market participants measure, compare and evaluate programme developments and country experiences globally.
