Union wants safer pension system amid reform: "Too many still see this as Monopoly money"

Swedish insurance industry union Forena calls Swedish politicians "arrogant" for not guaranteeing compensation for savers if they lose money due to financial crime within the premium pension platform. The suggestion is part of a larger reform proposal from the union concerning the entire Swedish pension system.
