EUROPE - IPE, Tilburg University and the European Pension Academy are seeking the support of European pension funds following the launch of the Global Pensions Survey (GPS)

GPS is the first comprehensive survey of pension funds to gauge developments, trend data, investment plans, as well as the prospects of individual pension funds and the economy at large. Participation time is estimated to be no more than 10 minutes.

The survey, which will take place quarterly via a dedicated web platform, will initially cover European pension funds but will broaden to cover US and Asian institutions in the coming months. The results will then be published in IPE, both online and in print.

The first survey is now live and pension funds are requested to participate by FRIDAY 29 JANUARY. No individuals or organisations will be identified and only aggregate data will be made published.

Liam Kennedy, editor of IPE, said: "We are delighted to support this prestigious new survey, which we hope will help increase the wider understanding and knowledge of pension funds and their activities."
