Mayer Brown launches A Global Guide to Retirement Plans & Schemes eBook

13 July 2017

Mayer Brown has today announced the launch of its latest eBook, A Global Guide to Retirement Plans & Schemes, which has been designed to provide a user-friendly overview of the regulation of retirement plans and schemes in 50 key countries.

The governance of retirement plans and schemes maintained by multinational corporations is a global issue. Retirement plans tend to be heavily regulated and can open employers up to numerous risks, including legal and regulatory compliance gaps, participant lawsuits, government investigations and embezzlement of trust funds. Many employers need to assess the governance and risk management structures for their retirement plans and schemes on a global basis.

The guide provides global employers with a valuable starting point when considering the regulation of retirement plans and schemes across multiple jurisdictions. It offers a summary of social security systems and employer-sponsored broad-based retirement plans/schemes on a country-by-country basis, making it an invaluable quick reference tool. Other areas covered include the principal statutes governing those plans and schemes, the key features of the applicable tax framework, employer funding obligations and the reporting and disclosure requirements.

A Global Guide to Retirement Plans & Schemes is available as an eBook/Web Reader and interactive PDF via the Mayer Brown website.

It is the third eBook to be launched by Mayer Brown's Employment & Benefits group, following the award-winning A Global Guide to Background Checks and A Global Guide to Restrictive Covenants. The firm also has an Employment & Benefits app, which includes thought leadership and easy access to other Mayer Brown resources.
