Pension funds are the core of the institutional investment that could support greater financial integration and stimulate long term investment in the EU. The low interest environment and disillusionment with the performance of pension funds has led to a widespread retrenchment of funded schemes, and possibly a move back into the redistributive state systems. In this context the EU Commission in 2017 proposed a new personal pension product that will be portable across the EU.
