The Pensions Review – led by the Institute for Fiscal Studies in partnership with abrdn Financial Fairness Trust – is a big, 2½-year, project that will comprehensively assess the consequences of current pension policy, the economic environment and individual behaviour for the future of living standards in retirement. It will also provide recommendations for reform to improve outcomes for future generations of pensioners across the UK.
On Thursday 20th April, the review was launched at an event in Westminster. It featured speeches and presentations from Alistair Darling, Heidi Karjalainen, and Lord Adair Turner, which can be watched back below.
Slides from the event are available here.
Heidi is a Research Economist in the Retirement, Saving and Ageing sector. Her current work includes research on pensions and saving for retirement.
