OECD: Tontines offer advantages & they are coming soon
Tontines were on the agenda at the joint Webinar by OECD and the Arab Pensions Conference to discuss the future of pensions as set out in the OECD Pensions Outlook Report which is published every 2 years to guide pension policy makers at their 37 member states.
Chapter 6 of the 2020 report set out guidance notes in regards to the benefits of risk sharing tontines and tontine annuities for governments, issuers and retirees concluding that they "offer real benefits... even without an external guarantee from (an insurer). This means that all participants can increase their retirement income".
Crucially, Mr Antolin & his team have ratified our stance that tontine pensions should ensure absolute fairness and should be constructed to reduce or avoid the problems associated with other proposed collective risk sharing schemes such as 'collective defined contribution' pensions.

Chapter 5 of the updated 2022 report can be read here.
