The Future Book: unravelling workplace pensions [2015 Edition]

The PPI held a policy seminar on 8 October 2015 to launch its first report in a series of annual reports called The Future Book: unravelling workplace pensions [2015 Edition], which was commissioned by Columbia Threadneedle Investments.

The Future Book is the first edition of an annual PPI publication, which sets out available data on the Defined Contribution (DC) landscape, explores emerging trends and contains PPI projections of future asset levels, scheme distribution and median DC pot sizes. The Future Book provides commentary and analysis on DC trends by leading thinkers in the pensions policy world, all with an end-consumer focus.

The seminar was attended by around 70 people representing a broad range of interests within Government, the investment industry, the pensions industry and the third sector.

Jonathan Stapleton, Editor-In-Chief of Professional Pensions, chaired the seminar.
