Retirement confidence is up in the U.S., Ireland and the United Kingdom, according to State Street Global Advisors’ Global Retirement Survey 2015. All three countries experienced an increase in the number of investors who are extremely confident or very confident they will meet their retirement goals.

In the UK, 43% were confident compared to 24% in 2014. In Ireland, 27% were confident compared to 17% the prior year.
