With the remarkable improvement of scientific and technological progress and social development, Chinese residents’ living standard and the quality of life have been improved significantly. In addition, due to our unique family planning policy, the problem of population aging is getting increasingly serious. Meanwhile, pension issue has caused wide concern and needs to be solved immediately. Specifically, in the context of the European debt crisis as well as inflation, the problem of how to preserve or increase the market value of pension requires more attention. In this paper, we firstly introduce the background of the pension investment in China capital market, and describe the current operating conditions and the challenges of it. We collect data from OECD Global Pension Statistics, including 46 OECD countries, with the sample of proportion of investing into capital market related to total investments. We find that the traditional investment mode of China's basic old-age insurance cannot achieve the objective of maintaining and increasing the value these funds. In order to fully enjoy the benefits brought by national economic development, pension funds need to be invested into the capital market to achieve the goal of expanding profits.
