The Great Pension Disruption

Pensions have historically been somewhat unloved. But in recent years, moves have been made to help educate, encourage, and engage those saving for their later years. Is it time for more drastic disruption though? Teamspirit has been keen to find out.

We sat down with Stef Kenyon, Assistant Director at ABI, and Mark Smith, Head of Media Relations at PLSA, to talk about the future of pensions as we know them.

So we went straight to the source and asked people when they last looked at their pension and what might be stopping them engaging further.
