Some more information on the project...
and pension providers have successfully delivered the first phase of
auto-enrolment, bringing 7.5 million new savers into the system.
Auto-enrolment has widened pension coverage, but contribution levels and
engagement remain low. Many of these new savers, are younger, interested
in where their money is invested, its impact and expect to connect with their
provider on digital platforms.
ShareAction's research is exploring the relationship between the saver, their employer and
their pension provider to understand why these expressions of demand are not
yet translating into a “pension with purpose”, and whether a pension with
purpose could switch savers on to greater personal ownership of their
retirement outcomes (they already have the responsibility). They are also
interested in the links between financial wellness, productivity and the
whether a pension with purpose could/does a role in talent engagement and
retention for employers.
