The Pension Policy Research Group hosted a webinar on Wednesday September 23rd 2020. Our guest was Susan Kiuvalainen, who was interviewed by Maureen Maloney.
They discussed the 2017 Finnish pension reform and its key elements and choices designed to promote the financial and social sustainability of the pension system in Finland. The idea was to identify options and lessons relevant to the Irish context.
Susan Kiuvalainen has been the Head of Research at the Finnish Centre for Pensions since August 2013. She is in charge of the research in support of the evaluation and development of earnings-related pensions (ERPs) in Finland. Finland recently implemented pension reforms intended to secure the financing of ERPs, promote sufficient retirement income and achieve intergenerational fairness. The European Commission presented Finnish reforms as a model for a sustainable European pension solution.
Maureen Maloney is a Human Resource Management lecturer at the Cairnes School of Business and Economics, NUI Galway.
