World Pensions Council

The Crossroads Where Modern Financial Research and Pension Policy Meet


Pension Research & Advocacy

The  World Pensions Council (WPC) is a non-profit policy research organization dedicated to the retirement & savings aspects of social protection in the broadest sense . . . We believe that only solid pension systems can “open up the way to higher standards of social welfare and economic security  

About Us



 The World Pensions Council has pioneered and helped mainstream key notions such as “Modern Trusteeship and Fiduciary Capitalism”, “The SDG–Driven World Economy”, “The Pension Wealth of Nations”, “Sustainable Finance Shifting the Trillions”, “The New Great Game” and “Infrastructure as an Asset Class”  



We design, conduct and disseminate academic and professional research on a wide array of pension related topics such as demographics, actuarial science and statistical methods, asset allocation, and investment governance across Europe, Asia and the Americas

We  believe that this holistic, multifaceted approach will facilitate  national and cross-border cooperation between all pension stakeholders, including board members & trustees


We're engaged in a wide variety of bipartisan advocacy efforts on  both sides of the Atlantic Continuum and across the developing economies  of Asia and Africa: providing lawmakers and CEOs with the right  SDG-driven legal, regulatory, financial economics and actuarial tools

These innovative tools help the pension community chart a course toward a better future for our  children and their children, where, in the words of Harold Macmillan, we  can truly “retain our heritage of political, intellectual and cultural  freedom while, at the same time, open up the way to higher standards of  social welfare and economic security”
