This conference will explore the successes and short-comings of auto-enrolment, a policy that has enjoyed cross-party support and brought an extra 10 million workers into occupational pension schemes.

It will also examine how pension policy must develop to ensure that these new members – and the workers still excluded from occupational pensions – can maintain a decent standard of living in old age.

Sessions will cover:

• Extending auto-enrolment to close the gender pensions gap
• Investing defined contribution pension pots productively while protecting members’ savings
• The role of collective defined contribution in improving outcomes for today’s DC members
• The case against further increases to the state pension age
