Dr. András Farkas, a pension expert, talked about why pension insurance is “compulsory”. He said that we are the “sandwich generation” who have to support their parents and their children. The retirement age is steadily rising and the state pension is decreasing, not to mention we are spending more and more retirement, as life expectancy is constantly increasing.
In addition, parental control is tightening in Hungary, which means that a parent can sue his or her child if he or she is not retired when he or she retires. If the parent goes to a residential institution, the institution can also sue the child to finance the treatment of his parents.
The real value of many savings
Institutional director of Concorde Fund Management, believes that the real value of many savings in the world will be significantly lower than those who put their money away. You see, the next 20 years will be completely different from the previous 20 years in terms of investment.
Low nominal interest rate environment pushed up riskier asset prices. However, further reductions in interest rates are unsustainable, as the current situation is counterproductive: a low interest rate environment is also damaging to savers’ balances. The next 20 years will mark a period that investors have not seen in a very long time: they will be rowing “against the wind” as inflation may be at an unprecedented level while interest rates are still relatively low.
