UK - The government has appointed former chairman of the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF), Alan Pickering, to lead a review of pensions legislation, aimed at cutting red tape.
Current chairman, Peter Thompson, said: “Alan has extensive experience and a great breadth of understanding of pension issues.
“We will be happy to put the knowledge and expertise of the NAPF and its members at Alan’s disposal in helping to bring about the much-needed simplification of pensions legislation.”
Pickering was chairman of the NAPF from May 1999 to May 2001.
