Special codes are required for foreign languages, according to Information Technology at the University of Michigan. UT8 codes are determined in international conferences, many in the Far East.

CALPERS, the public pension fund from California, is the largest. It looks at the European government pension funds. News letters from the Pension Investors Magazine is in now Emailed. But I read them occasionally. Funds for government employees are constantly changing.
