At Mercer Canada’s 26th Annual Retirement Outlook and Fearless Forecast, leaders in our Wealth business discussed the market outlook for Canada.

Mercer’s Retirement Outlook

Do we need to re-think retirement?
According to the most recent survey from the World Economic Forum on global retirement savings, it is estimated that the current retirement savings gap is USD $70 trillion. By 2050, this is expected to grow to USD $400 trillion. In Canada alone, our retirement savings gap is currently USD $2.5 trillion. This is a staggering number.

In light of changing workforce demographics, low financial literacy, public financial constraints and poor savings habits, how will Canadians overcome this savings gap?
