These reports from the Pensions Policy Institute will serve as a guide to the possible impact of policy as it will be implemented, and they will also form a baseline against which the future impact of auto-enrolment can be measured. The reports addressed the following questions:
- What level of pension contribution is needed to obtain an adequate retirement income?
- How can older workers be helped to benefit from automatic enrolment?
- Will automatic enrolment increase pension saving?
The series was sponsored by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), B&CE Benefit Schemes and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA).
A consortium of major sponsors supported particular research projects. These include:
- Defined Contribution (DC) Investment Forum
- Association of British Insurers (ABI)
- Legal and General.
IFoA representatives sat on the project Steering Committee.
For each part of the project there is a published, printed research report, which was accompanied by a launch event (hosted by the report’s major sponsor)
Timelines of projects:
- Adequacy: January-September 2013
- Older workers: July 2013 -January 2014
- Savings: December 2013-July 2014.

The importance of biodiversity for finance, business and policy is being increasingly recognised. While many studies highlight the overall economic impact that biodiversity loss could have, it is much more difficult to quantify and understand the particular impact that is may have on individual businesses or communities. The management and measurement of these risks is a field where actuaries are well placed to contribute.
The climate crisis and the degradation of our planet will affect societies everywhere. How we address these threats will require solutions that transcend borders.
