Oct 2012 United Kingdom Scheme Issues & Trends, Pension Reform, Investment - General, Automatic Enrolment
The Pensions Institute has published a report, commissioned by NOW: Pensions, to highlight some of the problems facing UK employers in providing their workforce with a good retirement income from auto-enrolment and to make suggestions as to how to overcome these issues.
