Since the 3rd edition of the Index report in 2011, a special topic has been selected to be a feature chapter annually.
This Special Feature Chapter facilitates policy discussions and engagement with all stakeholder groups, including industry, academics and society, by providing a directive and inclusive theme that is relevant to all cultures and retirement income systems.
The Chapter considers a contemporary topic relevant to achieving best outcomes for retirement, highlights the similarities and differences in each country, and discusses current and emerging issues and solutions. It has aided ongoing dialogue and prompted further action in many countries and organisations towards a shared goal of better retirement outcomes.
