Evolving Roles for Pension Regulations:

Evolving Roles for Pension Regulations:

Toward Better Risk Control?

(p.163) Chapter 9 Evolving Roles for Pension Regulations:
Recreating Sustainable Retirement

E. Philip Davis

Oxford University Press

The role of regulation in pensions has been transformed in recent years due to forces including the shift from defined benefit to defined contribution pensions, the shift to risk-based supervision for defined benefit and defined contribution plans, the role of accounting standards and transparency (contributing to market discipline), and the turbulence in financial markets. This chapter provides an overview of the evolution of regulation using evidence from selected countries under each topic. This regulation plays a part in the shift of pension portfolios towards lower risk, which may yet cause difficulties for future pension income. These shifts also leave open a number of outstanding questions, notably whether education of consumers is sufficient, the role of longevity risk, and whether regulation can be made more countercyclical.
