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.

Willis Towers Watson has published the 2018 edition of its Defined Benefit Survey, in which it analyses how pension scheme decision makers feel about significant developments relating to DB pensions over the last 12 months, such the government's DB pensions White Paper and increased interest in DB consolidation.

 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:

  • Do you prefer to receive trustee board meeting packs digitally or in print form?;
  • What do you find is the most frustrating thing about digital board packs?;
  • Do the DWP’s proposed regulatory changes for trustees’ ESG investment duties go far enough to remove barriers to social investment?;
  • The DWP wants trustees to publish a statement on the extent to which members’ views (both financial and nonfinancial) are taken into account in setting the investment strategy. Is this a good idea?; and
  • Are pension consolidation vehicles a good alternative to the insured buyout market?

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.
