New Dawn as Workplace Pensions Take Centre Stage

For many years personal pensions have had a tarnished image in many people’s eyes as a result of poor investment performance, high charges and complicated rules despite extremely valuable tax savings. I am excited that we are now entering a new dawn for pensions, which should help employees focus on their long-term financial planning and reverse years of decline in retirement saving where less than half the UK workforce has a private pension and traditional final salary pensions are becoming the exception outside the public sector.
