Abstract

This study proposes a new group of indicators in the analysis of pension plan systems performance. Section one presents a new model to evaluate the pension plan systems respond in the case of Japan and Malaysia. This new model, “The Pension Plan Systems Performance Evaluation Model (PPSPE- Model)” is intended to offer policy makers and researchers an additional analytical tool to study the impact of dynamic changes such as change in pension plan systems trends in Japan and Malaysia from a new perspective. The PPSPE-Model can be applied to the study of any pension plan system scheme and not constrained by geographical area or development stage of the entities on study. The PPSPE-Model is simple and flexible. Section two, summarizes the results on the performance of Japan and Malaysia pension plan system vulnerability and strangeness.
