Informed Choice Radio - financial peace of mind with Martin Bamford

My guest for this episode of Informed Choice Radio is Richard Parkin.

Richard is Head of Pensions Policy at Fidelity International.

He has over 20 years’ experience in the pensions and investment industries, particularly defined contribution retirement savings.

As Head of Pensions Policy at Fidelity, Richard leads their work on assessing the ever changing landscape for pensions and retirement in the UK. His role involves identifying opportunities to help Fidelity’s customers and develop their products and services.

He is also responsible for Fidelity’s retirement thought leadership combining with colleagues around the globe to provide fresh insight into the ever more complex issues customers face in saving for and living in retirement.

In this episode of Informed Choice Radio, I speak to Richard about whether we can expect a period of stability ahead when it comes to pension changes, if it was right to scrap plans for a secondary annuity market, unfinished business on pensions tax relief, how providers have coped with the introduction of pensions freedoms, and much more.

Welcome to Save More Tomorrow with Richard Parkin, in episode 151 of Informed Choice Radio.

Some questions I ask

-Could we have a period of stability ahead of us when it comes to pensions?

-What does the future look like for pensions and pension tax relief?

-What should we expect the state pension provision to look like in the future?

-How have pension providers coped with implementing pension freedoms, and what were some of the consequences?

-Has auto enrolment proceeded as planned, and what do you think it will mean for the next generation of pension savers?
