Three years on from the introduction of pension flexibilities, there is a growing regulatory and political focus on how the retirement market is working for consumers in practice. Ahead of the FCA’s Pensions Strategy and its Retirement Outcomes Review, and amid close Parliamentary scrutiny of the impact of freedom and choice, this event will consider:

  • What practical interventions before and throughout retirement will help customers make more informed choices?
  • What innovation has there really been in the retirement market and what developments should we expect next?
  • How does pension flexibility fit into a wider retirement strategy, and does the regulatory approach need to change?

As well as debating ideas and principles at this event, we will focus on the practical reality for customers and the industry.

Join us as we bring together industry, policymakers and key stakeholders, and work together to rethink the route through retirement.
