(p.91) 5 Regulation
Pension Funds

E. Philip Davis

Oxford University Press

This chapter evaluates some of the key issues in the regulation of pension funds through comparing and contrasting the experiences of the countries studied here and the solutions they have implemented. As the fundamental determinant of total precautionary retirement saving relies on the scope of the provision of social security, the regulatory and the fiscal environment that affects the use of pension funds serves as the vehicle for saving. The chapter first looks into the justifications for financial regulation and how these may be applied to pension funds. As it examines the major regulatory issues that affect both the assets and liabilities associated with pension funds, it also attempts to summarize what comprises ‘good regulatory practice’.

Keywords:   regulation, regulatory environment, fiscal environment, regulatory practice, assets, liabilities, pension funds, retirement saving
