Calls for proposals

The purpose of this call for proposals is to support cross-border cooperation of pension and  financial service-providers as well as relevant stakeholders with a view to raising the quality  of supplementary pension schemes and their contribution to secure incomes in retirement.

This call for proposals foresees to support two strands of work.
Firstly, building on the work of the Pension Forum group on a code of good practice announced in the White Paper support could be granted to one project aimed at developing a voluntary quality label for occupational pension schemes. The voluntary quality label
should be developed and managed by stakeholder organisations or their associations.
Aiming to contribute to adequate retirement incomes through promoting quality supplementary pension provision, it could address, among other aspects of pension schemes,  such issues as coverage of employees, cost effectiveness, mitigation and sharing of risk,
portability of pension products and shock-absorption.
Secondly, support could be granted to one or two transnational pilot projects on theconversion of pension scheme and other (notably housing) assets into secure retirement  income flows. The project(s) may focus either on asset conversion products, such as equity
release, or the design of pensions-scheme based retirement income flows.

Deadline for submitting proposals: 23/12/2014
