David McCarthy's pensions home page.

I am currently spending most of my time at the National Treasury in Pretoria, South Africa, where I am assisting with the design and implementation of various aspects of retirement policy.  

I am also a Visiting Fellow at the National Institute for Economic and Social Research, NIESR, based in Westminster, London.

This page is mainly intended as a portal for the academic work I am doing while at NIESR, as well as the work that I did while I was an academic at Imperial College, London, and Oxford University.  Work that I do at the Treasury in South Africa cannot be attributed individually.   You can see a list of National Treasury publications on retirement reform here.

Most of my work is related in some way to the economics and finance of pensions, although I am also working on taxation and banking.  Many of my recent papers and output from my various research projects can be found on this site.  As the site develops, it will contain more data and programming resources, as well as my current thinking on pension-related (and occasionally other) issues.

Please explore the site by selecting any of the menu tabs in the horizontal menu above.

You can e-mail me at the National Treasury in Pretoria at david.mccarthy@treasury.gov.za or at NIESR in London at d.mccarthy@niesr.ac.uk or by using the contact form in the contact details tab on the horizontal menu of this site. 

Many thanks for visiting.
