The article discusses the impact of volatility in the world stock markets on pensions. It reports that world markets have experienced daily movements of more than 2%, as the Financial Times Stock Exchange (FTSE) 100 trades below its record highs in July 2007. It explains that the volatility is caused by the deterioration of global market stability brought about by the U.S. subprime mortgage market crises. Some occupational pension funds are set to encounter difficulties as their surplus disappeared due to the market turmoil.
