The European Federation for Retirement Provision has released details of the 'Supporters Circle' it is establishing for investment managers, multinational employers, actuarial and consultancy firms. For a 'modest' three-year contribution of £3,100pa, it says the supporters will ensure that the views of the European pension industries will be represented in the EU institutions. They will receive regular information on developments in retirement provision in Europe and priority access to the association's conferences at reduced rates. High quality independent research on their behalf can be undertaken, says the EFRP. Details about membership are available from the EFRP's permanent representative in Brussels, Chris Verhagen on +33 2 289 1414.
