Economic Bulletin Articles, 2020, vol. 7

Abstract: The article describes the new quarterly and annual data available on pension funds reported under the ECB Regulation on statistical reporting requirements for pension funds (ECB/2018/2). The Regulation aims to increase transparency and improve data comparability in this fast-growing sector of the financial industry. The first harmonised information on pension funds reported under the Regulation was quarterly data for the third quarter of 2019 and annual data for 2019. These harmonised data enable the ECB and the euro area national central banks to compile a new set of statistics on pension funds. The first release of the pension fund dataset took place on 31 July 2020. JEL Classification: G23, J32, E21
