Strengthening Asset-backed Pension Systems in a Post-COVID World
This publication analyses the impact COVID-19 has had on asset-backed pension arrangements
and the main policies countries have implemented in response to date. It then presents
policy guidelines to help strengthen asset-backed pension arrangements and improve
retirement outcomes in a post-COVID world. The publication also discusses the short-
and long-term impact of COVID-19 on mortality, and the role that assets earmarked
for retirement could play in the post-COVID recovery.
