Although each European country has its own pension systems, they have many points in common.

We live in a time when the health of our pension systems and their future are hot topics. To find out in which direction the Spanish social welfare model should evolve, we decided to look around us and compare our situation with that of other countries such as Germany, Sweden and France. Three experts from these three leading markets took part in the debate.

Sweden completely overhauled its pension system in 1999, Germany opted in 2002 to encourage private plans, and France is currently examining the reform of its public pension model. Mixed public-private models, a wealth of information, and ongoing assessments are some characteristics of the pension systems in these countries that may be becoming a trend.

While it is true that each European country has its own systems, concern for future of pensions and the intense debate on how to make the system sustainable is common to all of them.
