The second annual Natixis Global Retirement Index offers a snapshot of retirement security around the world.

The index is put together by Natixis Global Asset Management and CoreData and measures the ability of 150 countries to meet the needs and expectations of their  retirees. 

It looks at 20 key performance indicators grouped into four broad categories: health, which covers metrics like life expectancy and access to quality health services; material well-being, or the means to live a comfortable life in retirement; quality of life, including factors like crime rates and air pollution; and finances, including the strength of the nation's financial system, its investment environment, and tax rates.

The below map shows retirement security by region, based on an aggregate score of each metric:
