These Are the World’s Best (and Worst) Pension Systems in 2020

  • Netherlands ranked world’s best for third straight year
  • Pandemic has weakened sustainability of many pension systems

The countries again took the top two slots in the Mercer CFA Institute Global Pension Index published Tuesday, drawing praise for holding their nerve and not allowing citizens to drain their accounts during the crisis.
