The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Session 4.4: Private Pension Funds: Competition and Factors Hindering Business Development
4 July 2019
This session will examine various manifestations of competition in the private pension fund market.
Discussions will focus on competition between PPFs of different sizes, including those with and without government participation, and the consequences of unfair competition, particularly as a result of actions by a fund’s agents. This will also provide an opportunity to assess the prospects for small private pension funds.
Speakers will review how PPFs compete for investors’ money with other financial market participants, such as insurers, banks, and professional market players. Special attention will be paid to enhancing confidence in PPFs through, for example, the pension guarantee system (compulsory pension insurance and, at a later stage, non-state pension schemes), and the financial recovery mechanism for PPFs.
The competitive advantage of asset management companies over private pension funds will also be examined, as limitations on managing pension investment portfolios are being removed.
