“Iceland performs well in many respects, but also good in other categories. This is a good overall result of the Icelandic pension system “ – we read on the website.

The comparison of pension systems is based on the one hand on the statistics of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development – OECD and other international organizations and databases, and on the other hand on information obtained by experts from Mercer and other countries surveyed.
