UK Pensions Market 2017

Summary

Pre- and post-retirement markets have seen some big changes over the last few years. The state pension has been changed from a two-tier to a flat-rate model to relieve pressure on the government, as the UK population is aging and individuals are living longer. Auto-enrolment will continue to be a big driver of growth in work- and trust-based pensions, as will buyouts as employers look to de-risk. By February 2018, all businesses will have to provide a pension to eligible employees, and by April 2019 the total minimum contribution will be 8%. New pension freedoms have given customers more flexibility in how they take money from their pensions.

Critical success factors
– Technology and robo-advice: Technology must be used to help clients with smaller pension pots access advice. Services will either need to give a recommendation or help individuals decide for themselves. There are generally two areas where technology can help pensions: aiding individuals saving for retirement, or helping those approaching retirement understand their options in terms of accessing their money.
– Encourage pensions savings: The market needs to continue to drive awareness of the need for individuals to save for retirement outside of the state pension. This is especially important to reduce opt-out rates as the minimum contribution increases.

Key pointers include in the report –
– The pensions market has grown by 10.7% to be worth £10.8bn annual premium equivalent (APE) in 2016, and is forecast to reach £17.5bn APE by 2021.
– Work-based and trust-based pensions hold the largest proportion of the pensions market (45.4% and 40.5% respectively); however, individual pensions have seen the highest growth (52.0%) since 2013.
– 1.23 million UK businesses will be required to provide a workplace pension by 2018.
– Income drawdown is now more popular than purchasing an annuity; however, those with pots valued under £30,000 are also opting to make full cash withdrawals.
