Join us for a discussion where we will launch the results of the 2020 Mercer CFA Institute Global Pension Index (MCGPI) with a virtual launch webinar across Australia and New Zealand.
The widespread economic impact of COVID-19 is creating very real issues for retirees, both now and in the future. Combined with increasing life expectancies and rising pressure on public resources to support the health and welfare of older citizens, COVID-19 has the potential to exacerbate retirement insecurity around the world.
The challenges of the time present us with an opportunity to come together as a global community. It's a chance to learn from each other, with the aim of providing retirees dignity and confidence in retirement.
Now in its 12th year, the Mercer CFA Institute Global Pension Index (MCGPI) report benchmarks each retirement income system using more than 50 indicators and covers almost two-thirds of the world's population. This year’s Global Pension Index also produces some surprising results which could influence current policy debates.
Dr David Knox will present the findings as lead author, and Professor Deborah Ralston will moderate the discussion.
The panel will include:
• Maria Wilton – Vice Chair, Global Board of Governors, CFA Institute
• Prof. Deep Kapur, Director, Monash Centre for Financial Studies
• Debby Blakey, CEO, HESTA
• Martin Lewington, CEO, Mercer New Zealand
