Hungary Pension Funds Lose 25% of Members, Vilaggazdasag Reports

April 10 (Bloomberg) -- A quarter of Hungary’s remaining 100,000 private-pension fund members decided to transfer their accounts to the government, Vilaggazdasag said, citing industry group Stabilitas Penztarszovetseg.

Several pension funds will close, the Budapest-based business daily reported.

Hungary effectively nationalized $13 billion in private-pension fund assets when more than 3 million people turned over their accounts to the state after the government in 2010 threatened to strip them of their right to a state pension.
