This is the first in a series of webinars to be organised by the PPRG over the coming months, designed to inform policymakers, industry leaders, researchers, and others with an interest in pension policy making. More information will follow shortly, including how to register.
Susan Kiuvalainen and Maureen Maloney will discuss the 2017 Finnish pension reform and its key elements and choices designed to promote the financial and social sustainability of the pension system in Finland. The aim is to identify options and lessons relevant to the Irish context.
Susan has been the Head of Research at the Finnish Centre for Pensions since August 2013. She is in charge of the research in support of the evaluation and development of earnings-related pensions (ERPs) in Finland. Finland recently implemented pension reforms intended to secure the financing of ERPs, promote sufficient retirement income and achieve intergenerational fairness. The European Commission presented Finnish reforms as a model for a sustainable European pension solution.
Maureen is a Human Resource Management lecturer at the Cairnes School of Business and Economics, NUI Galway.
