Tax-based financial incentives for savings are wasted on the lowest paid workers as they may not have the means to contribute more into their pension, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) says.
Such tax perks should instead be focused on the best-paid who may struggle to achieve a good replacement rate in retirement, making it difficult to achieve the same standard of living as in working life....
Online provider Pension Bee has created a flexible pension for self-employed savers, allowing them to make contributions according to their income.
Older savers are at risk of running out of their defined contribution (DC) pension savings with a third of their retirement still ahead, according to research by The People’s Pension and State Street Global Advisors.
Defined contribution (DC) contributions were scaled back by 11% in the second quarter of 2020 as the impact of the pandemic set in, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
The Barclays Bank UK Retirement Fund (Barclays UKRF) has integrated ESG factors and climate risk into a £1.3bn diversified growth fund (DGF) portfolio used for its defined contribution (DC) scheme.
PensionBee has launched four ready-made investment pathway solutions with State Street Global Advisors (SSGA) ahead of the February implementation deadline.
