PeRCent Annual Conference 2018

The PeRCent Annual Conference 2018 will take place on May 30, 2018, at Copenhagen Business School

Wednesday, May 30, 2018 - 08:30 to 17:00


The Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) at the Department of Finance and the Department of Economics, Copenhagen Business School, is proud to announce its fourth conference:

PeRCent Annual Conference 2018

Learn about whether the major drivers of pension reforms in OECD countries have been projected demographic developments or the state of the economy at the time when reforms were legislated; ways in which productivity trends have implications for pension policies; how interest-only loans are used by Danish households over their life-cycles; and how unemployment risk affects consumption and savings decisions. This year’s panel with high-profile representatives from Denmark, the Netherlands, and Canada will debate the Danish pension system in light of the Dutch and Canadian experiences. The keynote speech will be given by Joao Cocco from London Business School who will talk about pensions and investments.

The Conference is a joint initiative between Copenhagen Business School and the Danish pension industry and is organized by Professor Svend E. Hougaard Jensen from the Department of Economics and Professor Jesper Rangvid from the Department of Finance.
