Professional Pensions has published the latest edition of Pensions Buzz, a weekly survey which monitors the attitudes and opinions of the industry. This edition's questions include:
  • Should national retirement income targets be developed to improve savers' understanding of how much they need to save?;
  • The Court of Appeal has ruled trustees cannot unilaterally 'design benefits'. Do you agree?;
  • Do you believe the £150,000 minimum reserve requirement for master trusts is sufficient to protect members?;
  • Latest research finds nearly half of DB liabilities are now hedged. In general, do you believe schemes are over-hedging, under-hedging or hedging liabilities at about the right level?; and
  • Do you believe there is an over-reliance on models in the pensions industry?

What limits workplace pension participation amongst threshold adults (aged 25-39 years)?
What limits workplace pension participation amongst threshold adults (aged 25-39 years)?
Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
Jul 2018 United Kingdom Savings
The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) has published a research report exploring what limits workplace pension participation amongst young adults aged between 25 and 39. The report finds that people in this age range limit their participation in workplace pension saving because they feel the need to establish themselves as adults before they engage with pension saving. According to the findings, the process of becoming established as an adult is subjective but often includes various financial and social factors such as income, home ownership and major life events.

Jul 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies), Savings

JLT Employee Benefits (JLT) has published the results of research conducted with 2,500 UK employees to identify how businesses can improve mental and physical wellbeing by helping people achieve, rather than worry about, financial goals.  According to the results, 78.5% of respondents say that saving for retirement is worthwhile, however just 59.7% believe they are knowledgeable about pensions, savings and investments.

Don’t Chase Risky Income in Retirement
Royal London Policy Paper 22
Royal London
16 Jun 2018 United Kingdom Investment - Performance, Savings
Royal London's latest policy paper seeks to explain why attempting to generate high levels of natural income in a retirement pot may result in "seriously damaging consequences". According to the report, savers do not need to chase after investments with a high natural income and they would be better advised to focus on getting the risk/return trade off right by spreading investments across a range of asset classes.
