As part of the first-ever European Retirement Week, BETTER FINANCE will organise the “How do I get Value for Money” workshop on 30 November. More details to follow soon.
The European Retirement Week will take place from 29 November to 3 December and will kick off with an exchange of views with Mairead McGuinness, European Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and the Capital Markets Union.
This will be followed by a range of presentations and panel discussions organised individually by the eleven participating associations that will discuss Europe’s retirement saving challenge and possible solutions. Watch this space for a full programme.
With European countries ageing fast and governments coming under increasing budgetary constraints, solutions must be found to ensure that all European citizens benefit from an adequate pension in retirement. Given the growing urgency of the challenge, the participating associations aim to establish European Retirement Week as a recurring event in the European calendar.
This year, European Retirement Week will be organised in an online setting in light of the continuing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Participating associations include AGE Platform Europe, BETTER FINANCE, BEUC – The European Consumer Association, Cross Border Benefits Alliance – Europe (CBBA-Europe), ETS Project Consortium, European Association of Paritarian Institutions (AEIP), the European Banking Federation (EBF), EFAMA, the Federation of European Securities Exchanges (FESE), Insurance Europe, PensionsEurope.
