WorldPensionSummit 'Africa Special' 2015 | Building Sustainable Pension Systems in Africa

The WorldPensionSummit hosted its second ‘Africa Special’ edition in Nigeria, on 5- 6 October with a focus on African developments in the pension industry and was organized jointly with the National Pension Commission (PenCom) of Nigeria. The first edition of the WorldPensionSummit 'Africa Special' was held in the context of the 10th anniversary of the Nigerian pension reform in July of 2014. 

This pan-African platform focuses on key aspects of pensions and social security. Global experts and thought leaders, together with key practitioners, debated and exchanged key elements of developing and structuring a sustainable pension system for African nations. For many countries this will be a step-by-step approach; also taking into account other priorities such as poverty reduction, financial literacy and inclusion and base first social security services. Creating a new pensions structure means that there is time to share the expertise, learn from best practices and fit these ' lessons learned'  into the specific culture of a country. WorldPensionSummit Africa Special is THE platform to exchange the expertise; supporting professionals in social security and in all aspects in pensions to gain the expertise. Not just the strategies… but even more the pragmatic steps and essentials to professionalize the pensions and make them ' future proof'.
