UK - A new research organisation - The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) - has appointed its first director, Alison O'Connell.
O’Connell was previously head of strategy at the Swiss Reinsurance Group.
The PPI aims to to encourage the right framework for long-term pensions planning, and provide better information on the extent and nature of provision for retirement.
Chairman Tom Ross said: “Pensions affect everyone. But too few people understand them and what is needed for adequate provision for retirement. The PPI will help to set out the real choices facing the UK pensions policy.”
