DC pensions: sculpting security in post-retirement

The DC Pensions Conference 2021 (November 15-19) brought together hundreds of trustees, in-house pension managers and HR and Benefits professionals to gain fresh perspectives on DC pension topics and strategies.

In a post-Freedom world we have lost the notion of DC being a pension system. Arguably it’s now simply a way to help people build long-term savings pots, rather than provide an income in retirement. 

In our third stream we welcomed Professor Jeff Brown, who served as a senior economist at the White House Council of Economic Advisers. Jeff discusses the retirement savings issues faced in the US and why substantial change is needed. We then explore how this resonates with the UK and set out a blueprint for what an ideal default at-retirement framework could look like.  

The stream ends with a look at one of Barnett Waddingham’s partner’s retirement aspirations. How are they using Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to frame their plan? Also, what retirement insights are they getting from conversations with family and friends?
