New European Pension-Fund Rules Are Not Yet Final, Barnier Says

June 01, 2012

Michel Barnier, the European Union commissioner for financial services, said new pension-fund rules are “not yet spelled out” and expects to submit a revised directive on institutions for occupational retirement provision before the summer of 2013 rather than at the end of this year.

The European Commission, the EU executive in Brussels, wants to await quantitative impact assessments, Barnier said in the text of a speech in Amsterdam today.

The commissioner also said Solvency II rules for insurers should apply starting in January 2014.
