Pensions World SA is a quarterly journal that includes articles from employee benefit practitioners throughout the spectrum of organisations throughout South Africa.
The publications keeps our readers up-to-date on topical aspects of retirement funds, including developments in the legal, taxation, investment, wellness and financial planning areas. Our articles cover topical issues and challenges facing the employee benefits market and also provide educational information for trustees.
New ownership and strategy
Pensions World SA was recently acquired by EBnet, a unique digital retirement industry knowledge portal in South and Southern Africa with the widest digital footprint in the industry. Pensions World will use the EBnet distribution platform to reach all the different stakeholders on our vast network and database.
The EBnet distribution platform consists of e-mails to over 12,000 subscribers, several times a week with a weekly industry summary at the end of the week. In addition, every article posted on EBnet is also posted to Social Media daily to our 12,000 followers and a weekly summary is done to our broader LinkedIn affinity groups with over 227,000 members.
The format of the magazine will also be overhauled and updated so that it's no longer just a PDF file, but upgraded to the latest e-magazine interactive format with clickable hyperlinks to external resources / websites / surveys, etc.
This enablement further steps up the entire digitisation of the combined Pension World / EBnet / Social Media presence to unrivalled levels in this unique market segment to the benefit of our readers and advertisers alike and we are excited by the new opportunities this brings to the retirement industry and its stakeholders.
