UK Occupational and Group Pensions Market New Study 2013 by

Pension reforms are going to encourage much-needed innovation in the occupational pension market. Pension providers will have to create more efficient business models if they want to engage with employees on low wages and SMEs and reap the rewards of auto-enrolment. Appealing to the mass market will have to involve stripping down internal systems and processes and re-engineering them from the consumer’s point of view.
