The lifetime ISA (LISA) is a "better solution" to cover those left out by auto-enrolment (AE) such as the self-employed according to Tom McPhail.
Speaking to PP, the Hargreaves Lansdown head of pensions research said it was important to find a solution which does not need a lot of work.
He disagreed with Royal London policy director Steve Webb who has called for the national insurance system to change so it can provide pensions for the self-employed.
McPhail (pictured above) said: "LISA is a better solution. We have got it and can work with it. This is not the right time to use national insurance as a solution for the problem [of the self-employed]."
LISA offers the right blend of flexibility and security to encourage the self-employed to save he added.
The government should report to WPC about the effect of LISA on AE before this year's Autumn Statement, the report added.
