Will Britain take the next pension contribution increase in its stride?
Royal London Policy Paper 20
Royal London
Mar 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment
Royal London has published its twentieth policy paper, entitled "Will Britain take the next pension contribution increase in its stride?", which looks at the first phase of automatic enrolment and the mandatory contribution rates rise to a combined 5% in April 2018 and to a combined 8% in April 2019. The paper argues that these rises will not lead to a rush to opt out of workplace pensions as a number of factors will combine to keep pension scheme membership at a high level.

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 think the CMA investigation into the investment consultant market has had any noticeable impact on their business activity?;
  • In light of the CMA’s review of the investment consultant market, have you, or a scheme you work with, reviewed your current investment consultant?;
  • The Pensions Regulator and Financial Conduct Authority have agreed a joint pensions strategy on how they will collaborate. Should their pensions functions just be merged into a single regulator?;
  • Should employers who are closing DB schemes to further accrual maintain their contribution rate in the alternative DC scheme?; and
  • Were a revolutionary medical breakthrough to emerge, increasing lifespans, should trustees of DB schemes or governments then be able to introduce limits on the duration of benefits payable past a certain age?
