UK - Confederation of British Industry director general Digby Jones has called on the Chancellor to make pensions and saving for the future the "new cool".
Jones said the government should “provide tangible incentives for the low-paid and all younger people to save for their retirement”.
Jones added that it was the government’s responsibility to lead the way, possibly by tax incentives and stressed that business support for meaningful incentives would be unequivocal.
Labour Party plans to renationalise core industries and require the largest listed companies to hand 10% of shares to employees would be a "double whammy" for pensions, business leaders have warned.
A handful of industry heavyweights have begun trialling a so-called 'mid-life MOT', with positive initial results reported by all those involved.
The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) has announced it will shrink its board by more than one-third as part of a governance overhaul to make it "agile and more appropriate".
