FIAP-ABRAPP International Seminar - Trends in Pension Systems Worldwide - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil held October 3 & 4, 2024

The International Federation of Pension Fund Administrators (FIAP) and the Brazilian Association of Pension Funds (ABRAPP), are pleased to invite MEBCO members to register for the FIAP-ABRAPP International Seminar "Trends in Pension Systems Worldwide." The seminar will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on October 3 and 4, 2024.For more information and to register visit : https://www.abrapp.org.br/fiap-international-seminar/

The seminar’s main objectives are to review the evolution of pension systems in the light of demographic trends, labor markets, and public pension policies, and examine the existing mechanisms to universalize social protection, in particular pension savings, for which appropriate public policy options are required (such as contributions through consumption, incentives for pension savings through the use of behavioral economics, automatic enrollment in pension plans, use of government-issued retirement bonds, among others). The seminar will also emphasize the quest for solutions to strengthen the labor market, to achieve better pensions for workers through greater formality. Moreover, the seminar will explore ways to improve the risk/return profile of pension funds. Finally, the political and social situations in Latin America and their bearing on the pension reforms currently under discussion will also be assessed.

This Seminar coincides with FIAP’s 27th Annual Assembly. International experts will share their experience and knowledge. It will be attended by guests from around the world (FIAP member countries and others), including government officials, legislators, officials of international agencies, representatives of pension fund managers, mutual funds and insurance companies, and other personalities related to the financial sector and social security.
