The European Commission is developing a pan-European Pension Product (PEPP): a simple and cost-effective retirement plan which will be portable across EU member states. The PEPP will be designed to give hundreds of millions of savers throughout the EU more choice where currently options are often few and far between. It will also create new growth opportunities for pension providers to take advantage of a European single market for personal pensions estimated to grow to 2.1 trillion Euros over the next decade, as reported recently in the Financial Times.
