New year demand for pension IFAs doubles, as need for A-Day advice begins to dawn
IFA Promotion
13 Mar 2006 United Kingdom Savings, Pension Reform
There is a growing demand for independent financial advice due to increasing awareness of A-day, according to figures from IFA Promotion, which received twice as many enquiries for financial advice on personal retirement in January 2006 as in January 2005. Despite this increasing awareness, however, only one fifth of people planned to review their pension arrangements within the next six months.

30 Jan 2006 United Kingdom Pension Reform
According to survey findings from IFA Promotion, the organisation promoting the benefits of independent financial advice, public awareness of A-Day, as both a term and a reality, has shot up over the past half year. However, with just three months to go until wide-ranging reforms to UK pension rules take effect, just 21% of UK adults intend to review their pension arrangements and whether A-Day could benefit or cost them.

30 Nov 2005 United Kingdom Savings, Pension Reform, State Pensions
Research from IFA Promotion, the organisation promoting the benefits of independent financial advice, shows that despite Adair Turner's stark assessment of UK pension provision, 40% of UK adults believe the issues surrounding the UK pensions system will be solved by the time they retire. Even amongst those closest to retirement, workers aged 55-64, three out of ten still think the various issues will be resolved in time for their exit from the working world.

Invest Trust Fund Manager and IFA 2004 Market
Investment predictions and views for 2004
IFA Promotion
Dec 2003 United Kingdom Investment - Performance, Investment - General

Investment predictions and views for 2004 have been collated amongst 30 investment trust fund managers representing £10.5 billion assets under management, a fifth of the industry, and through a poll amongst IFAs. The research shows some significant parallels between the views of both groups. The majority of investment trust fund managers and IFAs were cautiously optimistic, predicting that the FTSE 100 will close between 4500 and 5000 by the end of 2004.  In addition, both groups tip the Far East and Emerging Markets as top performing sectors next year.

Government failing to convince nation to save
A survey of UK adults on savings strategy
IFA Promotion
Apr 2003 United Kingdom Savings
A survey of UK adults, conducted just days after Gordon Brown’s Budget speech, has recorded a firm thumbs-down for the Government’s long-term savings strategy so far. Whilst a third of UK adults say the current Government has made them more inclined to save for the future, 43% say they feel less inclined to save, and a further 19% say Government initiatives have made no difference to their savings behaviour. Worse still, almost half (47%) of people on lower incomes say the Government has made them less likely to save.

Get Saving!
UK savings provision and consumer behaviour
IFA Promotion
Oct 2002 United Kingdom Savings

This comprehensive, independent report into UK savings provision and consumer behaviour reveals that the UK faces a savings shortfall of £66 billion, threatening the future financial security of almost two thirds of the population (29 million adults) if no action is taken to close it. This figure dwarfs the widely reported £27 billion pension-only ‘savings gap’ and serves to highlight the extent to which people are under-providing for themselves, not only in terms of retirement income, but across all forms of long-term saving.
