10 million – that’s the success of auto-enrolment in numbers. 10 million people saving billions into a pension. But the job of pension providers and the government is far from being complete.

In this podcast with Hymans Robertson, I discuss what the DWP’s consultation on charges could bring for pension savers and give an insight into the latest activity from The People’s Pension in our members’ best interests.

Podcast highlights

  • Not-for-profit – what it means to be a master trust provided by B&CE, an organisation that’s for people and not profit.
  • Benefit of our new charging structure – the more our members save the lower their charge could be.
  • Our take on DWP’s consultation on charges – a potential solution to millions of cross-subsidised dormant pensions.
  • The importance of the default fund – our report, ‘Workplace defaults: Better member outcomes’ with State Street Global Advisors, depicts the behavioural biases and the common investment mistakes made by savers.
  • Our approach to responsible investment – the steps we’ve taken to ensure our investment funds reflect environmental, social and governance factors.
  • Support for our members and employers how we do things differently to other providers.
