This Teleconference revisited the topical issue of pan-European pension plans, and recent developments in this area. Have pan-European pension plans finally become a reality and what would a multi-national employer with operations in the EU need to consider if he wants to implement a cross-border pension plan? What are the advantages and disadvantages, and are any jurisdictions more conducive than others to this sort of arrangement?
