‘Safe harbour’ needed to tackle pensions savings gap

Gary Smith, 09 September 2016

Gary Smith, Head of DC, shares his thoughts with MRM on how the pensions savings gap can be reduced.

Gary's comments were published by Pensions Age and can be viewed here.

The employer can see this as an opportunity to create a supportive and productive environment for their workforce – which attracts and retains quality staff. However, there is also an element of risk management here; employers are scared of the regulatory issues of giving advice. I think we need to create a safe harbour environment.
