PeRCent Annual Conference 2023

The Pension Research Centre (PeRCent) at CBS is proud to announce its ninth annual conference on November 7 at CBS


Don't miss this opportunity to be part of pivotal discussions in the world of pension economics and policy shaping. Join us at the PeRCent Annual Conference 2023!

Research Presentations
The research presentations at this year’s conference will present new evidence on whether mandatory pension savings crowd out voluntary saving; why the demand for reverse mortgages is so low; if pension funds cause capital market deepening; and how individuals optimize their liquidity positions when thinking about early pension withdrawals. 

Keynote Speaker
This year’s keynote address will be given by Professor Francisco Gomes from London Business School. Professor Gomes is a leading international expert on life-cycle savings and asset allocation. He will talk about life-cycle asset allocation.

Policy Forum
The policy forum will this year mark the 30th anniversary of the first contributions to mandatory labour-market pensions in Denmark. The forum will debate how this has influenced the Danish economy, with a focus on challenges ahead for the current system. Panellists will represent pension funds, organizations, and academic institutions.

The conference is a joint initiative between Copenhagen Business School and the Danish pension industry and is organized by CBS-professors Svend E. Hougaard Jensen and Jesper Rangvid.
