PensionsEurope launches news programme to create workplace pensions awareness
In the UK and Europe, the population is set to increase to 520 million people in 2070 with 41 million fewer people working 50 years from now. ‘Investing in the Future’, the news-styled programme, will create awareness and education around pension opportunities and planning. It will also touch upon industry themes such as the post pandemic response and the effects on investments and pensions, addressing the gender pension gap, how ethical investments are changing the pension landscape and the latest innovations and efficiencies in the sector, among others.
The programme will launch on 9 June 2021. Matti Leppälä, secretary general/CEO of Pensions Europe said that it is important for people to know and understand the challenges they will face with their pensions and to think what can and needs to be done. Nina Harrison-Bell, head of ITN Productions Industry News said that there is still a lack of understanding around pension opportunities and hoped that this programme would address the knowledge gap.
