RESAVER - A Pan-European Pension Fund
The European Commission is supporting a consortium of employers, through Horizon 2020, in creating a single European pension arrangement (RESAVER) that will offer a defined contribution plan, tailor-made for research organisations and their employees.

In particular RESAVER will:

  • enable mobile and non-mobile employees to remain affiliated to the same pension vehicle when moving between different countries and changing jobs
  • lower asset management charges
  • provide better access to high quality investments
  • offer a mosaic approach that includes three uniquely designed vehicles to administer pension contributions and provide individual insurance coverage.
