Abstract

Rising elderly life expectancies imply the need for more saving throughout the Asia-Pacific region. This paper investigates the role of recent changes in the investment offerings of the Singaporean Central Provident Fund (CPF) in this process. Our research explores investment patterns of CPF participants and comments on alternative paths for retirement system redesign.
