Shaping a stable pensions solution
There is now consensus on the UK's pensions problem and that reform of the state pension system is needed. The pensions community wants a simple and sustainable solution.
Shaping a stable pensions solution has been building up a picture of the possible shape of a consensus pensions solution that could work for the long-term, through a series of papers and seminars to debate the most critical pension issues on the interaction of state and private pensions.
