Long-Term Savings Conference 2017: Engaging customers for tomorrow's retirement

04 July 2017 11:30 (registration from 10:45) - 17:20 followed by a networking drinks reception

ABI, One America Square, 17 Crosswall, London EC3N 2LB

Major reforms are firmly in place to automatically enrol pension savers and give them freedom in how they access those savings. But the implementation of these reforms has left some issues unresolved, amid further changes to pensions policy and an evolving long-term savings market:

  • Where does the final balance of responsibility lay for people saving and taking retirement choices?
  • Who fails to benefit from these reforms and what can we do about it?
  • How is the digital revolution affected by the way our industry is regulated and its ability to get more people to save?
Join the debate as we look at how the industry, policy-makers and customers will need to adapt to address the emerging and ongoing challenges of the changing pensions landscape.

As the pension freedoms settle, what evidence is there about customer behaviour? How can the industry and policy-makers help people make decisions in their long-term interests?
