Actuarial Post: Life and Pensions sector needs to embrace Robots This article was originally commissioned for the November 2016 edition of the Actuarial Post.

This article was originally commissioned and published in the  October 2016 edition of the Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts publication.  Tom Murray suggests that the Government should move away from using investments as a policy tool and compel people to protect themselves financially instead.   INVESTMENT LIFE & PENSIONS MONEYFACTS: CUSHIONING THE BLOW Succeeding Governments have concerned themselves with the financial insecurity of those on the bottom rungs of society. The plight of those whose earnings don’t allow them to amass a significant financial cushion to cope with unexpected events has struck a chord with ministers from all parties, who have tried to come up with solutions that will support people at times of great financial stress. The motive is admirable. Let’s help the ordinary worker build a stockpile of savings to be able to cope with life’s ups and downs. However, the focus always seems to be on pushing savings for a rainy day, which ignores the basic problem that for the majority of basic rate taxpayers, it takes far too long to amass sufficient savings to provide any level of security.
