The Mansion House reforms

It’s been a big week for the pensions industry with the Chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s speech at the Mansion House.

Jeremy Hunt also spoke about the government’s wish to merge smaller inefficient funds and he reminded everyone that any investments should be in the best interests of the ordinary people contributing to pension fund.
