An annual index from Australia has ranked Finland’s pension system as the world’s fourth-best.

This year’s Mercer Global Pension Index surveyed the retirement income systems in 27 countries across their adequacy, sustainability and integrity. Of these, Finland came up trumps in the integrity sub-indice.

When all three were tallied up, Finland’s pension system was listed as fourth position overall, representing a leap up of two places from last year’s result.

Denmark took the top spot on this year’s index, followed by the Netherlands and Australia.
