CITY VIEWS: SHOULD PEOPLE BE FORCED TO CONTRIBUTE TO A PENSION SCHEME?

<strong>ANTHONY JOHN </strong>FUND QUEST<br />&ldquo;Compulsion is going to be the only way most people provide for retirement. Over the last ten years, there has been a privatisation of pensions. The government can&rsquo;t provide for everyone living here. The burden will be too much for the state.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>LEE CHAPMAN </strong>VERDANT WEALTH<br />&ldquo;I haven&rsquo;t started thinking about pensions yet, I&rsquo;m 21 . If pensions are still around when I&rsquo;m older, which I doubt, then I would like to pay into a Final Pension Salary scheme. I&rsquo;m going to invest in the property sector, and property will act in the way of a pension.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>STEPHEN RYDE </strong>STANDARD BANK<br />&ldquo;I don&rsquo;t think people should be made to pay into a Final Pension Salary scheme. Instead, people should be made more aware as there is a lack of education. When I was 25, I had no idea. Only when I had kids, did I become more aware.&rdquo;
