PETS Reading:澳洲最受青睐居住地
Australia is the country most workers and retirees around the world would like to live in 20 years' time, an international survey found.

However, most Australians are unaware of how they will fund their retirement, the poll concluded.

The Retirement Scope survey conducted by French insurance giant AXA questioned workers from 26 countries, with two-thirds of Australian respondents unaware of the source of their retirement income or how much they would need.

Australians ranked as more aware than people from France, Spain or Indonesia, but behind those in Malaysia where more than half of workers can "put their finger on their retirement income", Fairfax newspapers report.

On the other hand, Australia's relaxed lifestyle and climate were its biggest attractions for retirees around the world, who voted it the most desirable place to retire to, although Australian respondents preferred New Zealand.

Australia came out above the United States and Switzerland.

The survey of 15,000 people found the average income of Australian retirees was $1,917 a month, while the cost of average household expenses is $1,437 a month.

"The survey found that the average retirement age among Australians is 57 years of age, and that 'old' is at 80 years, giving Australians 23 'bonus years' in which to enjoy a healthy and active retirement," AXA general manager of sales and marketing Adrian Emery told Fairfax.

一项世界范围调查发现,澳大利亚是世界各地众多劳动者和退休人士最向往的晚年居住地。

然而,多数澳大利亚www.pets12345.com问题却一无所知。

该项由法国保险业巨头AXA集团开展的“退休知多少”调查共对26个国家的劳动者进行了访问。调查发现,三分之二的澳大利亚受访者不知道他们的退休金来源以及自己究竟需要多少退休金。

据《费尔费克斯》报业报道,澳洲人对于退休金问题的了解强于法国、西班牙和印度尼西亚人,但要逊色于马来西亚人。调查显示,超过一半的马来西亚受访者“对自己的退休金问题了如指掌”。

另一方面,对于世界各地的退休人士来说,澳大利亚悠闲的生活方式和宜人的气候是最吸引他们的地方。然而,尽管澳洲被评为最令人向往的退休居住地,但澳大利亚本国人却更青睐新西兰。

美国和瑞士位居澳大利亚之后。

该项共有1.5万人参加的调查发现,澳洲人的退休金为平均每月1917澳元,家庭平均月开支为1437澳元。

AXA集团营销总监阿德里安•埃默里在接受《费尔费克斯》报业的采访时说:“调查发现,澳洲人的平均退休年龄为57岁,而(多数人认为)80岁才是老年阶段的开始,所以澳洲人可享受23年拥有退休金、健康而有活力的退休生活。”
