The Office for National Statistics (ONS) has published preliminary estimates from the Wealth and Assets Survey covering the period July 2012 to June 2014. The findings reveal that knowledge surrounding workplace pension reforms increased substantially over the period, with the proportion of those questioned who said they had not heard of it dropping from 40% in the first quarter (July to September 2012) to just 8% in the final quarter (April to June 2014). The survey also found that more people thought they would retire at an older age than previously, with 58% thinking they would retire at 65 to 69, up from 54% two years earlier. The main results from wave 4 of the Wealth and Assets Survey will be published in December 2015.

Office for National Statistics
11 Apr 2007 United Kingdom Investment - Performance, Investment - General
The Office of National Statistics (ONS) has published MQ5: Investment by insurance companies, pension funds and trusts - 4th quarter 2006. Total net investment by these institutions is estimated to have been £25bn in the fourth quarter of 2006, £0.7bn higher than the figure for the third quarter. A decrease of £2.8bn in net disinvestment in UK company securities was the main factor in the rise, whilst net investment in British government sterling securities and other assets increased by £0.3bn and £0.1bn respectively. These increases were partly offset by falls in net investment in short-term assets and overseas securities of £0.6bn and £1.9bn respectively.
