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.

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.

Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts: The real Brexit dividend for pensions

Investment Life & Pensions Moneyfacts Brexit Pensions pension regulations

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. There is a lot of noise in the media at the moment about the so-called “Brexit dividend”.  Leave supporters claim that there will be a huge financial windfall from leaving the EU, in line with the infamous claim of a possible extra £350 million per week for the NHS.  Although this was widely discredited in the months since the referendum, it has been raised again by the Foreign Secretary, who now reckons it will be even higher.
