Mechanisms Behind Retirement Saving Behavior: Evidence From Administrative and Survey Data
Mechanisms Behind Retirement Saving Behavior
The TIAA Institute
Feb 2018 United States Countries - US, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings
The TIAA Institute has published a study into the behaviours that influence employees’ decisions regarding their retirement plans. The report found that in opt-in plans, efforts to encourage employees to increase their savings above the default rate are likely to be successful if they focus on improving financial literacy and understanding of exponential growth. However, in automatic enrolment environments, efforts targeted at procrastination tendencies are likely to be particularly effective.

ShareAction
Feb 2018 United Kingdom Advisers, Corporate Governance, Investment - Performance
Research by ShareAction has found that a large proportion of independent governance committees (IGCs), which were established by law in 2015 to represent the interests of UK pension savers, are failing to review whether savers are getting value for money from their schemes. According to the research, just under half of IGC reports did not provide data on how well savers' investments were performing, while almost a third did not state how much savers were being charged by their workplace pension provider.
