The Future Book: unravelling workplace pensions 2015 Edition

The Future Book is the first edition of an annual PPI publication, commissioned by Columbia Threadneedle Investments, 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.

Chapter one describes the current framework of the state and private pension system in the UK and briefly outlines main systemic changes, focussing particularly on those affecting the DC pensions market. It also explores relevant international developments.

Chapter two makes use of available data and PPI analysis to paint an overall picture of the current state of play within the DC market, both on an individual and aggregate level.

Chapter three uses PPI modelling to explore how the DC landscape might evolve in the future both for individuals and on an aggregate level.

Chapter four highlights the developing themes from the report and explores how industry and Government could help address problems consumers have with engaging with and understanding pension savings.

Chapter five contains reflections on the themes highlighted by the report from leading thinkers and commentators in the pensions world.
