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

The Future is Ever Changing

The PPI remains a constant "VOICE OF REASON" in the ongoing debate of the future of retirement in the UK. 

Our History

Our journey began back in 1997 when the Pension Provision Group (PPG) chaired by Tom Ross OBE was tasked by Harriet Harman, the Secretary of State for Social Security, to assess the likely trends in pensions provisions. The PPG report – “We all need pensions” - made a vitally important contribution to the debate of future pensions policy.  It concluded that “An organisation, independent of government, needs to have lead responsibility for accumulating, analysing and publishing information about current and future pension provision and its implication for pension policy.”

On Monday 22nd January 2001, the PPI formally came in to existence, so that a permanent expert organisation would undertake rigorous research from an independent, long-term perspective. This is helping all those interested to achieve a better, wider understanding of retirement provision issues. We have now been analysing policy and future trends for over 20 years.
