The PPI is an INDEPENDENT educational, not-for profit research institute. We undertake rigorous research from a neutral, long-term perspective

Our Mission

To promote evidence-based policies and decisions for financial provision in later life through INDEPENDENT research and analysis. 

About the Pensions Policy Institute

The PPI was formed on 22 January 2001, so that a permanent expert organisation would undertake rigorous research from an independent, long-term perspective. It is governed by its Memorandum and Articles of Association (‘constitution’).

The retirement, pensions and later life market are undergoing fast-paced changes brought about by legislation, technology, and the economy. We do not lobby for any particular issue or reform solution. Our work facilitates informed decision making by showing the likely outcomes of current policy and illuminating the trade-offs implicit in any new policy initiative. We are proud that our research is used frequently by Government, Parliament, industry, consumers, academics, trade bodies, consumer groups and the media to improve policy and individual outcomes. The PPI is frequently quoted in the news and financial media with coverage reaching a vast audience.

As a registered charity, we rely upon donations from our Supporters and donations from both individuals and organisations. Simply put without our Supporters and Donors there would be no PPI!
