What role does pension reform have to play in boosting the economy and funding the industries of the future? 

The UK Chancellor’s recent Mansion House speech promised to “unleash the superpower” of Defined Contributions pension funds in order to “seize the opportunities of the future”. 

The proposed reforms and a new compact with leading pension providers aim to increase savers’ incomes and unlock billions of pounds of investment capital to fund high growth enterprises. 

But will this new policy direction deliver on its promise? And is it radical enough? This money is our pension savings; to what should the government decide it is invested? Will these reforms really give us a more prosperous life in retirement?  

Join our panel of experts at the RSA to ask: what are the tools, incentives, structures and strategies that will prove most effective in creating greater opportunities for people and communities to thrive in a transformed global economy?
