CITY VIEWS: WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR PENSIONS?

KEVIN HUGHES | AXA
“Working in insurance I’m pretty well looked after. I’ve heard people talk about concerns but from a personal perspective I’m not that worried about the future of pensions.”

JONATHAN WEITZMANN | APPLEBY GLOBAL
“Ultimately the future depends on how the government splits up the funds. Raising the retirement age could be a good idea as there are plenty of people still able to work.”

BARNABY DIXSON | HISCOX
“There needs to be a big change in regulation. There’s a big shortfall and it’s people on low and middle incomes that are being affected the most. I think we should go back to linking pensions to earnings.”

NICK GRAHAM | JP MORGAN
“With the way things are, by the time I retire there may not be a pension to draw from. Pensions don’t seem to be a major concern for the government and they should be. If they aren’t sorted now it could be too late.”
