The International Centre for Pension Management (ICPM) is a global network of pension organizations that stimulates leading-edge thinking and practice about pension design and management. ICPM brings together an influential community of pension industry professionals to share knowledge and interact with academics pursuing pension-related research. ICPM organizes interactive Discussion Forums involving practitioners and researchers and provides funding for objective and transformative research to support effective management and innovation in pension organizations. ICPM also offers pension governance education programs for board members of pension plans from around the globe.
