The real Brexit dividend for pensions   This article was originally commissioned for the March 2018 edition of the Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Magazine.  Tom Murray argues that a slowdown of new regulation, and the stability that this brings to long-term planning, could be the real Brexit dividend for pensions.

What was meant was guidance, we were told, a cheaper level than advice which would guide people through the options available but definitively not recommend anything to the individuals receiving the guidance.
