More than Skr 150 bn (e18bn) in new Swedish pensions premiums will pour into the global stockmarket this year.
The equity windfall will result from the proliferation of pension outsourcing to investment managers both from institutions and individuals - including the SKr66bn transfer of 2.5% of individual wages into the PPM system this autumn.
The final list of companies offering funds to the PPM system and their fee structures has now been announced with a staggering choice of 509 funds available.
The research by Mikael Nyman, at Stockholm based Pensioner & Förmåner magazine, operates on the basis that Swedes choose a 50/50 bonds /equities mix for investment, which he believes is a conservative figure.
