How the UK Saves 2018
How the UK Saves
NEST/Vanguard
28 Jun 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment, NEST/Personal Accounts, Savings, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Scheme Issues & Trends
NEST Insight, in partnership with Vanguard, has published its inaugural 'How the UK Saves' report, which analyses the impact of mandatory auto-enrolment among employers that use NEST as their DC pension provider. The research found that opt-out rates among NEST members are low at only 6% of new employees, whilst cessation rates are similarly low, with less than 2% of active members ceasing to contribute to their pension. It also revealed that member contributions vary by demographic group, with workers aged between 55 and 64 contributing almost double that paid in by workers under the age of 25.

Employers' Pension Provision Survey 2017
Employers' Pension Provision Survey
Department for Work and Pensions (DWP)
20 Jun 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment, Occupations/Industry Sectors, NEST/Personal Accounts
The DWP has published the 2017 edition of its Employers' Pension Provision survey, which looks at the extent of pension provision among private sector employees. According to the survey, since 2013 the percentage of private sector organisations that make some form of pension provision for their employees has increased from 32% to 56%. It also found that among employers who had begun automatic enrolment, 65% said that this had resulted in an increase in the total pension contributions they had to make. The majority of those employers (71%) said that they had chosen to absorb the cost of this increase as part of their overheads, and 47% said that the increase in total pension contributions had led to a reduction in their profits.

Pension savers with small pots want freedom too
Pension savers with small pots want freedom too
National Employment Savings Trust (NEST)
16 Sep 2016 United Kingdom Taxation, Savings, NEST/Personal Accounts, Pension Reform, Automatic Enrolment, Annuities and Income Drawdown
According to qualitative research conducted by Ignition House on behalf of NEST, savers who are approaching retirement welcome the new pension freedoms but lack confidence about navigating the more complex choices now available to them. The findings also revealed that there was significant support among respondents for the development of new retirement products that combine flexibility, security, and ‘rainy day’ cash, even for those with smaller pots.
