Rational Pension Supervision.First Experiencies of Central and Eastern European States in Comparison with Other Countries


New financial institutions, pension funds, are being established in Central and Eastern Europe, that are also an important element of the social security system. They provide an additional source of income in old age. This source is all the more important insofar as public, pay-as-you-go pension systems in many countries are having problems with meeting previous pension commitments, which were often excessively generous and did not take into account potential changes in demographic conditions and the labour market.

The subject of our consideration will be the experiences relating to pension fund regulations from the point of view of their safety of operations in five countries of Central and Eastern Europe.
