PPI submitted a consultation response to 'Retirement Outcomes Review: Investment pathways and other proposed changes to our rules and guidance' in April 2019.

Key findings:

  • Automatic enrolment in workplace pensions has vastly increased the numbers of people saving for retirement.
  • Overall, engagement with pensions remains low, and people may not be in a position to make informed decisions about their pension pots.
  • Pre-designed investment pathways represent an opportunity to solve this, but care needs to be taken to ensure that they work in the best interests of users.
