Objectives of the session

The objective of this session is to discuss the benefits of the new PEPP framework (both in terms of attracting savers and of creating opportunities for providers), as well as its ability to foster the development of an EU personal pension market and to channel pension savings towards long-term investments in Europe in the context of persistent zero or even negative long-term interest rates.

The session will also focus on the remaining issues to be fixed by level 2 through technical acts, in order to achieve the success of this new Regulation. In addition, speakers will be invited to express their views about the external challenges of the PEPP, outside the scope of the PEPP framework (tax treatment, lasting low interest rates and weak economic growth).
