Launch of Survey of Private Pension/Provident Funds (2006 & 2007)Published Wednesday July 2nd, 2008
The Central Bank is requesting the assistance of pension managers and sponsors in updating the survey on domestic pension plans in The Bahamas. This survey continues to provide useful information on supplementary retirement savings in the private and quasi-public sectors. The latest results, for 2005, indicate that the value of these assets continued to increase, surpassing $950 million.
The Bank is currently collecting information on the evolution of plans during the years of 2006 and 2007, and is appealing to plan sponsors and managers to participate, by submitting a completed copy of the Survey Form to the Research Department by August 29, 2008. Companies that specialize in constituting and managing subscriber based plans for individuals or groups are invited to submit consolidated information on these products.
The Central Bank assures pension sponsors and managers that any information provided will be treated confidentially. Only consolidated results will be published.
Questions or comments regarding this exercise, can be directed to Ms. Andrea Adderley, Research Officer, Research Department, at 302-2709 (email: [email protected]).
