AEIP and PensionsEurope provided their joint stakeholder feedback to EIOPA’s Discussion Paper on a Methodological Framework for Stress-Testing IORPs. With that, the two organizations make recommendations on the toolbox of common methodological principles and guidelines but also suggestions for its use in the next IORP stress test exercise in 2022.

Overall, AEIP agrees with cost transparency and comprehensive cost reporting as an objective of the management board of the IORP and/or the negotiating social partners in the setup of a pension scheme, however this objective should not cause more transparency costs than transparency value. Extensive cost communication to the members and beneficiaries should be limited to pure DC schemes with investment options where costs are borne by the members. Clear definitions of cost, a general classification, principles for compilation and templates might be useful ...
