The OECD/IOPS Global Forum on Private Pensions, held on 29-30 October 2015, will explore current trends in global private pension systems and the ways in which pension regulatory and supervisory authorities are managing and reacting to the evolution of these systems. Some of the trends that will be considered include the increased interest in long-term investments and the prolonged period of low-interest rates in the financial services markets. The role of behavioural economics in the financial system, and the contributions that large pension funds may have on the economy and financial stability will also be considered.
