Abstract

In recent months, there have been significant changes in European pensions policy and its implementation, which affect (or afflict) employers and employees, and there is more to come. Pensions policy remains important for EU policymakers. This article suggests that opportunities for cost savings, simplification of cross-border arrangements and commercial joint ventures are becoming ever more available. Although the reform of the IORP Directive may look at first instance to be an additional barrier to provision, it might actually prove to be a catalyst for improved regulation.
