UK - Almost nine out of ten defined contribution (DC) scheme experts believe employees look for workplace advice on pensions.
However, the NAPF warned that, pending the findings of the Thoresen review of generic financial advice, advisers must steer clear of providing 'regulated' advice.
Joanne Segars, chief executive, NAPF, said: "Employees do not just want standard information, they want in-depth information, much of which could be bordering on regulated advice.
"It means the skills of the employer have to be widened especially in being able to judge the difference. It can be a fine line but for the employer, it is a crucial legal and regulatory line."
