This event individuals start to save into a workplace pension, it is vital that schemes are well-governed and deliver value for money for savers. The introduction of new pension freedoms offers unprecedented opportunities for individuals, but it is crucial that changes are communicated properly so that people can make solid plans for retirement.

The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association plan is working hard to promote a regulatory framework for DC pensions that maintains incentives to save, protects schemes from unnecessary costs and ensures good retirement outcomes are delivered for all savers.

Our mission is to help everyone achieve a better income in retirement. We work to get more people and money into retirement savings, to get more value out of those savings and to build the confidence and understanding of savers.

We represent pension schemes that together provide a retirement income to more than 30 million savers in the UK and invest more than £1.3 trillion in the UK and abroad. Our members include asset managers, consultants, law firms, fintechs, and others who play an influential role in people’s financial futures.
