Global Pensions and Benefits Council

The global pension and benefits arena has never been more challenging for multinational employers. The provision of pensions and benefits to employees faces a multitude of regulatory, fiscal, economic and investment challenges that need to be addressed to protect sponsor balance sheets and ensure appropriate engagement and delivery to the work force. While the complexities and characteristics of each geographic market are unique and particular, the challenges and potential solutions require a global perspective and strategy.

The Global Pension and Benefits Council brings together executives tasked with developing these strategies and addressing the challenges to share insights and best practice and hear from leading market practitioners in a collaborative, collegiate forum. All members share a common need to understand developing trends and solutions in retirement and risk benefits from national, pan-European and global perspectives.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers in an international network are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogues at meetings and in between provide you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
