With the launch of auto enrolment and the changing rules in the annuity market, pensions have entered a new phase of increased media interest. Management styles are being called into question as the ongoing debate of active vs passive rages on. Meanwhile, perhaps now more than ever, trustees are trying to ensure low cost, high return portfolios. For advisers, while the tide of staging dates may seem daunting, the opportunities available to access a wide range of new clients as a potentially exponential source of revenue are difficult to ignore.
At FWD, we know how to capitalise on the shake-up of the annuity market to ensure that pensions and investment firms become recognised voices within this changing market. Also we are seen to supply a sober, intelligent and balanced voice within this debate.
