At this event, IFS researchers will draw together the conclusions of a number of pieces of work carried out over the last three years, which shed light on how financial preparedness for retirement differs across cohorts and important differences within cohorts.
In particular, they will highlight factors that will be important for policymakers and providers to think about in future - a theme that will be expanded on with responses from a panel of experts:
- Professor James Banks, University of Manchester and Institute for Fiscal Studies
- Otto Thoresen, Director General, Association of British Insurers
- Steve Webb, MP, Minister for Pensions
There will also be ample opportunity for questions and comment from the floor. The event will be chaired by Paul Lewis from BBC Radio 4's Money Box programme.
A drinks reception will follow the event. Places are free of charge but please register in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
