About us

The World Pension Alliance (WPA) is a collective organization made up to be the main advocacy associations representing pension plans and providers in the World, including Europe, the United States of America, Canada, Latin America, and Australia.

Founded in 2011, under the name of Global Pension Alliance, the network kept growing and made a decisive step in 2016, when it created its governing rules, appointed a Chair and a Coordinator, and changed its name to World Pension Alliance. Today, through its members, the WPA represents more than 400 million people covered by retirement plans, and roughly 5000 pension providers managing more than 7 trillion US $.

The primary long-term objective of the WPA is to be recognized at the international level as the common voice of the not-for-profit pension industry representing millions of retirement income plan members.

To achieve its long-term objective, members of the World Pension Alliance:

1 > facilitate an open exchange of ideas, experiences and best practices among WPA participants; advocate on issues of common interest in order to globally defend and promote the voice of the not-for-profit pension community by supporting WPA member positions with local, regional, national and international decision makers;

2 > provide independent thought and education on issues impacting retirement income including subjects such as investement management, governance and legislation.
