Personal Accounts Delivery Authority
Jan 2009 United Kingdom Savings, NEST/Personal Accounts, Investment - General
According to a report written for the Personal Accounts Delivery Authority (PADA) by Sharon Collard of the University of Bristol, there is a widespread lack of knowledge and understanding about pensions and investment choice. In addition, UK consumers (and women in particular) are generally found to be risk averse. In keeping with this, consumers have been found to focus more on minimising financial losses than maximising financial gains, even when making decisions about long-term investments such as a pension.

The research found that personal accounts were overwhelmingly seen as a good idea. It also found that charges were a relatively small barrier to the acceptance of personal accounts provided that they were proportionate, transparent and fair. Overall, respondents often didn’t understand charging structures and preferred the simplicity of single rather than a combination charging structure.
