The division between the public and the private sector is becoming thinner all the time. The same is true for pensions in the public and the private sector:

  • pension funds and insured plans are being introduced in the public sector;
  • an increasing number of people have mixed public sector/private sector careers;
  • private sector corporate governance rules are also imposed on public sector pension funds;
  • many pay-as-you-go schemes in the public sector are being converted into pre-financed schemes.

The mix of private sector pensions legislation and public sector administrative law concepts and rules can be highly complex.
