International pensions promises

International pensions promises: legacy risk, harmonisation and mobility

Who should attend

This course is aimed at in-house lawyers and pensions managers who work in international organisations, as well as HR directors and benefit consultants.

Synopsis

Although harmonisation and consistent treatment will often be the most efficient options for an international company, every country's retirement benefit provision is strongly influenced by local law, cultural expectations and economic circumstances.

Also, every country responds

to the issues of increasing longevity, de-risking, transition from DB to DC and governance expectations, in different ways. This means international employers must accommodate wide disparities in pension aspiration, provision and regulation.

Also, every country responds to the issues of increasing longevity, de-risking, transition from DB to DC and governance expectations, in different ways. This means international employers must accommodate wide disparities in pension aspiration, provision and regulation both in terms of managing risk and handling transactional activities.
