Will we ever summit the pension mountain?
Royal London Policy Paper 21
Royal London
16 May 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment, Investment - Performance, Investment - Property
Royal London has published its twenty-first policy paper, entitled "Will we ever summit the pension mountain?", which looks at how much savers need in their pension pot to avoid an uncomfortable retirement. The research found that the amount has grown in size in real terms by three quarters since 2002 from around £150,000 to £260,000. The analysis also shows that falling levels of home ownership mean that younger generations who end up having to pay rent in retirement could need a total pot as high as £445,000 to avoid a slump in living standards when they stop work.
