Professional Pensions
23 Feb 2016 United Kingdom Trustees, State Pensions, Savings, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Longevity, Local Government, Investment - Management
Professional Pensions has published the latest edition of Pensions Buzz, a weekly survey which monitors the attitudes and opinions of the industry. This week's questions include:
  • Is the average citizen doomed to work until they are 85 to secure a decent retirement income?
  • Is the financial well-being of young people being sacrificed to underwrite pension promises to an older generation?
  • Is the Government wrong to think that 'bigger is better' when it wants to pool 89 LGPS funds into six large groups?
  • Does it seem dangerous the industry has gone from very limited choice, with people largely restricted to buying annuities, to 'anything is possible' in such a short time?
  • Will 2016 be the make or break year for master trusts with the smaller ones being swallowed by the larger ones in a wave of consolidation?

Royal London Policy Paper Three - Pension Tax Relief: Radical Reform or Daylight Robbery?
Royal London Policy Paper Three
Royal London
23 Feb 2016 United Kingdom Taxation, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Savings, Pension Reform, Automatic Enrolment, Administration
Royal London has published a report warning against replacing the current pension system with either a pension ISA or a low flat-rate of tax relief for all. The report calculates that a flat rate of tax relief, set at 25%, would be worth little more than £2 per week extra for basic rate taxpayers whilst also representing a major disincentive to pension saving for higher earners.
