Life insurers see pensions as a focus

EUROPE – The new chairman of the Comité Européen des Assurances’ life insurance committee says pensions are a focus in the next few months.

“Many life insurance issues will be discussed at EU level over the next few months, such as portability and taxation of occupational pension schemes in cross-border situations and gender equality,” said Gérard Ménéroud.

“I am proud to be playing my part in making sure that CEA continues to promote effectively the views of the European insurance industry."

Ménéroud, a member of the executive board of France’s CNP Assurances, has taken over from former Allianz board member Juergen Eichelmann, who has stepped down after a two-year term.

Brussels-based CEA, which has said the European directive on occupational pensions represented a “substantial success” for insurers, represents more than 5,000 European insurance companies.
