Chile Pension Reserve Fund

The Pension Reserve Fund (PRF) was established on December 28, 2006 with an initial contribution of US$ 604.5 million.

Background

The Copper Stabilization Fund was created in 1985 and in 2006 Chile passed the Fiscal Responsibility Law which involved the creation of two new sovereign wealth funds. The first of these is the Pension Reserve Fund (PRF) which is essentially a Savings Fund (no withdrawals are allowed to be made from the fund for a minimum of ten years). This fund receives between 0.2% and 0.5% of GDP depending on the size of Chile’s overall budget surplus each year, and initially received a one-off sum of US$ 600 million in 2006 to kick-start the fund.

It was set up in response to Chile’s new demographic scenario characterized by an increase in life expectancy and the growth of senior citizen population, adding on yet another challenge for the Government in terms of greater future retirement expenditures and the need to guarantee basic solidarity pensions to those who were not able to save enough for their retirement.
