PensionsEurope’s aim is to provide Europe with a financing vehicle (pension fund or similar) – not precluding any others catered for by commercial undertakings – that is affordable for large sections of the population and that provides a degree of intra- and inter-generational solidarity.
The association has 23 national member associations having app. 3.5 bn. € (2009)assets under management as funding to the supplementary retirement income of appr. 80 mio European citizens.



PensionsEurope represents the various national associations of pension funds and similar institutions for pension provision. PensionsEurope has members in most EU Member States. Most PensionsEurope members in EU-15 are non-profit making associations. Members and beneficiaries are usually represented in their governance structures; many of them are managed on a paritarian basis between unions/employees and employers.
PensionsEurope membership at large consists of institutions for occupational (2nd pillar) retirement some of them also operating purely individual pension schemes (3rd pillar).
To address the concerns of Central and Eastern European Countries – CEEC -it has established in October 2006 the CEEC Forum. Membership of this Forum is open to representatives of private pension institutions from EU-12 Member States that over the recent years have made multi-pillar pension reform.
