Professional Pensions has launched the PP Pensions Commission in a bid to bring together industry opinions and ideas on the future of pensions ahead of the general election on 4 July.

The commission will have a number of aims.

First, it will bring together, in one place, ideas for the future of pensions that have been put forward by the industry and by the individuals within it. These will include those from membership, trade and professional bodies, think tanks, industry firms, trustees and other individuals.

The views included will not only include thoughts on what pension policies an incoming government should focus on but also their views on areas of current policy that should be amended or removed altogether.

We will also proactively solicit views from the industry through our Pensions Buzz survey and through an editorial campaign to get people and organisations from across the industry to express their views on the future of pensions – and whether they think there are any simple, low-cost policies the next government could implement as soon as it assumes office in a bid to improve pensions policy.

In addition to this, we will ask a panel of experts to discuss some of the ideas and provide their input in a special panel session ahead of the election.

Finally, we will collate all the thoughts and opinions we have received into a single report for submission to the new government's pensions minister.

PP editor Jonathan Stapleton said: "We hope the PP Pensions Commission will be able to bring together industry thought on the future of pensions in the run-up to the general election and give the incoming government an overview of the industry's opinion of the path pensions policy should take going forward."

What should a new government be prioritising when it comes to pensions? Are there areas of current pensions policy that should be changed or scrapped altogether? And what simple, low-cost policies could the next government implement in a bid to improve pensions policy.
