DETERMINANTS OF FINANCIAL SUSTAINABILITY OF PENSION FUND ADMINISTRATORS IN NIGERIA

Abstract:

Financial sustainability of pension funds are often cited as essential determinants for ensuring the provision of safe and reliable pension for retirees and pensioners. Whether pension fund administrators will become part of a lasting solution to the pension financing problems in Nigeria or not depends on their ability to continue to grow, expand and sustain themselves over the course of time. Contemporary literatures on pension reforms identified financial sustainability as the key challenge of Pension Fund Administrators. This study, therefore, examines the determinants of financial sustainability of pension fund administrators in Nigeria. A positivism thought to epistemology guided by quantitative parametric pooled regression were used as paradigm and technique of analysis respectively . A data set of fifteen sampled pension fund administrators taking cognizance of Contribution, Size, Net income, Age, Board size And composition and GDP as independent variables were pooled and regressed against Sales scaled by total assets. The results indicate a positive and significant contribution of age, size, net income and contribution to financial sustainability of pension fund administrators. On the contrary, GDP, Board composition and board size, though, not significant displayed a negative contribution to financial sustainability of pension fund administrators in Nigeria. Conclusively, the result inferred that the level of sustainability today will affect the sustainability tomorrow regardless of where the pension fund administrator stands in its life cycle or developmental stage. Therefore, the study recommends amongst others a close monitoring and swift actions to remedying any weakness in Pension Fund Administrators
