ERFF Working Paper December 2020

Issues & Solutions for Retirement Savings & Investments
Working together to create long-term financial security for European households

The European Retail Financial Forum (ERFF) is a consumer-focused, pan-European industry platform. Launched in the European Parliament in 2015, ERFF was set up in response to the European Commission’s stated ambition to expand the dialogue on opening up retail financial markets in Europe and to engage with ‘all stakeholders around one table’. We particularly welcome collaboration with consumer groups. Our main activities are business/consumer dialogues, technical workshops with EU policymakers and our annual ‘Consumers at the heart of finance in Europe’ conference.

The purpose of this paper is to help the ERFF explore issues in 2021 that go to the heart of the ageing population challenge and the role that retirement income savings can play in the financing the Covid recovery and Green Deal policies. This work complements the work of the ERFF in examining solutions to the more immediate issues facing retail consumers from Covid economic impacts.
