PensionsEurope – Jerry Moriarty has been named chair of PensionsEurope. He is chief executive officer of the Irish Association of Pension Funds (IAPF) and is a member of the Occupational Pensions Stakeholder Group (OPSG) at the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA).
The election took place on 16 November 2023, during the PensionsEurope annual general meeting (AGM). Moriarty will succeed Janwillem Bouma, who has served as the chair of PensionsEurope since 2015.
During the AGM, PensionsEurope also elected Ann Verlinden of PensioPlus (France) and Klaus Stiefermann of aba (Germany) as vice chairs.
Moriarty said: “There are many challenges ahead in a more uncertain world, but it is important for all Europeans that more people save more in order to be prepared for retirement. The members of PensionsEurope play a crucial role in this and we will continue to work with all stakeholders to encourage more funded pensions throughout Europe.”
Moriarty has more than 30 years of experience in pensions and a deep understanding of the industry and its regulatory framework, which are important in guiding PensionsEurope.
Bouma, who chaired PensionsEurope for the past eight years, expressed his confidence in Moriarty’s abilities, stating: “It had been a privilege for me to serve the interest of the members of PensionsEurope over the years. I thank all my colleagues on the board for all the fruitful discussions we have had, and I have all the confidence in Mr Moriarty and wish him all success”.
