Learning from how others see us  This article was originally commissioned for the October 2018 edition of the Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Magazine.  Tom Murray considers why the Government should examine the external view of auto-enrolment before considering the best way to raise contribution levels.   It is now six years since the introduction of auto-enrolment into the UK and there have been a number of reports assessing the impact of the project on the level of pension savings in the UK.  On the whole, these have been primarily positive, with a large increase in the number of people saving and a lower level of opting out than was previously expected.

Personal finance does require personal responsibility

Financial Ombudsman Service FOS Sipp Portafina Financial Adviser

ACTUARIAL POST: Personal finance does require personal responsibility  This article was originally commissioned for Inner Workings, a monthly column written by Tom Murray, in the  October 2018 edition of the Actuarial Post.   It’s rare, in the world of personal finance, that I find myself completely taken by surprise but the ruling of the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) in the recent opinion on Portafina was one such occasion.  FOS ruled that a client, who had transferred out of a defined benefit scheme into a SIPP was incorrectly advised, and therefore Portafina were ordered to put the client back into the financial position he would have been in if he had never transferred out.

Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts: Tapping into the psyche of millennials

Millennials Pensions protection smartphones new technologies

Tapping into the psyche of millennials  This article was originally commissioned for the September 2018 edition of the Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Magazine.  Tom Murray says it's time the life and pensions sector started giving millennials what they want in order to increase their low uptake of financial products.   Millennials are truly a divergent generation.  Their approach to life is poles apart from their parents’ generation. As such, any company that approaches marketing to millennials in the same way as they have marketed to previous generations is going to make itself irrelevant very quickly.

ACTUARIAL POST: All the king’s horses…  This article was originally commissioned for Inner Workings, a monthly column written by Tom Murray, in the  August 2018 edition of the Actuarial Post.   Once upon a time, people saving for their retirement were given a great deal of support by the taxpayer. This was provided on the basis that there were severe restrictions around the money saved and that the savers would ultimately be forced to use that money to buy annuities. These would provide a guaranteed income in retirement, ensuring that the taxpayer would have far less responsibility for the retiree, and therefore was getting a good deal for the tax foregone.
