The World Bank has recently commissioned CeRP a study on benchmark portfolios for pension funds.
The objective of this project is to provide a reliable benchmark for evaluating the performance of pension funds (considering Defined Contribution pension funds). This work will be part of a wider study coordinated by the OECD and the World Bank on “comparing investment performance of privately managed pension funds across countries”. The purpose of this study is to undertake a comparative analysis of investment performance of privately managed pension funds across several OECD, Latin American and Central and Eastern European countries.
The study will be presented at the WB in November 2008.
