Norway is the best country for retirees. In this year's Global Retirement Index by Natixis Investment Managers, the Scandinavian country takes first place. For the ranking, 44 countries worldwide were assessed, according to factors such as health, finances in retirement, quality of life and material wellbeing in old age. An index score was then assigned, with 100 points the best possible result.
Iceland is one of the biggest fallers this year. With 79 points, the island nation is only good enough for third place in 2022. In last year's ranking, Iceland scored four points more and held the top position. Switzerland stubbornly holds on to second position despite a loss of points, as this infographic shows. The United States doesn't make the top ten, only scoring 69 points and finding itself in rank 18.
