On May 6 and 7, 2010 in Vina del Mar, Chile took place the International Seminar Developing the Potential of the Individually Funded Pension Systems.
The main purpose of the Seminar organized by FIAP together with the Chilean AFP Assoctiation was to identify means and instruments whereby the pension fund managers can broaden their current efforts for solving the pension problem and furthermore, extend them to other areas of interest so as to improve the quality of the population's social security protection.
There was three approaches for meeting this objective. In the first place, different ways were explored in which the individually funded programs can extend their coverage to sectors of the population that are not currently engaged in pension saving or are doing so through other types of vehicles that are less appropriate for providing an effective solution to the pensions issue. Secondly, ways were explored whereby the pensions industry can take advantage of its experience and capacity for attending to other social needs of the population. Finally, organization and process alternatives that enable improving the operational management and effectiveness of the industry were analyzed.
The publication, which is the ninth one published by FIAP in the same format, provides the reader with several works that seek to identify means and instruments whereby pension fund managers can extend the contribution they make to solving the pensions problem and, in more general terms, improve the quality of the population’s social protection.
Papers presented by renowned academics and authorities are featured at the beginning of the book. Like the invited speakers, they speak on the seminar’s subjects with a practical and objective focus aimed at highlighting the characteristics and concrete results of policies, products and organization and management models that can serve as a reference for innovating and improving the processes and regulations of pension fund managers and regulators:
- Conference “Crisis and Pensions: Lessons from the Global Financial Collapse”, presented by Sebastián Edwards, Henry Ford II Professor of International Business Economics of the University of California (UCLA) U.S.A.
- Conference “Challenges for Extending Coverage to Lower-Income Workers”, presented by Felipe Kast, Chilean Minister of Planning.
- Conference “How to Innovate in a Regulated Industry”, presented by Wenceslao Casares, Founder and co-Executive Director of Bling Nation, USA.
- Keynote Address “Observations on Individually Funded Pension System Design: Advances for the Future”, presented by the renowned Professor of the University of Harvard and winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in Economy, 1997, Robert C. Merton.
