The integrity sub-index considers three broad areas of the pension system, namely regulation and governance; protection and communication for members; and costs.
This sub-index also asks a range of questions about the requirements that apply to the private sector pension plans in each country. After all, well operated and successful private sector plans are critical because without them the government becomes the only provider, which is not a desirable or sustainable long-term outcome.
Hence they represent a critical component of a well governed and trusted pension system, which has the long term confidence of the community.
