PP's panel of pension prophets - Malcolm McLean, Roger Mattingly and Robin Ellison - discuss what is currently annoying them about the UK pensions system.
The trio will be appearing along with Independent Trustee Services director Peter Askins, at this year's Pensions and Benefits UK, a conference which will be held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre on 28-29 June.
PAN Trustees director Roger Mattingly has a number of items on his "grumpy list" - top of which is the trend of selling product rather than looking after client and member needs first and foremost, something he says is becoming "prevalent" within the industry.
Pinsent Masons head of strategic development for pensions Robin Ellison says he is disappointed, among other things, about The Pensions Regulator (TPR), which he feels may be "costing us a lot of money for not very much benefit". He also rails against what he calls the "unholy alliance" of HM Revenue & Customs and HM Treasury and the "grotesque instability" of the pensions tax system over the past 15 years.
Barnett Waddingham senior consultant Malcolm McLean - the chairman of the panel - said he was angry about the "constant tinkering" of pension rules by politicians.
