The largest 100 CEO retirement funds are equal to the retirement account savings of 41 per cent of U.S. families, or more than 116 million people, according to a new study. More than half of Fortune 500 CEOs receive a company-sponsored pension, and nearly three quarters have tax-deferred compensation accounts, the Center for Effective Government and Institute for Policy Studies found. The largest 100 retirement funds were worth a combined $4.9-billion (U.S.) at the end of 2014.
