The Great Risk Transfer: How Can Individuals Manage New Risks in the 21st Century?

Thursday 22 April 2021 11:30 - 13:00

Spaces available

Recent decades have seen institutions, such as employers and financial services, give people more choice and flexibility, but these freedoms have come with more responsibilities. Individuals are now responsible for managing more of their own financial risks, from ensuring they put enough money into their pension to securing affordable protection to be financially resilient.

Join Demos and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) for an online panel discussion to mark the launch of new IFoA research as part of their Great Risk Transfer campaign. The panel will discuss how risk management has changed in recent decades, and how policy makers can make sure individuals are able to manage new risks, including saving enough for a good retirement and securing care later in life.

Panelists include:

  • Charlotte Pickles – Director at Reform think tank
  • Vicky Pryce – Economist
  • John Taylor – Immediate Past President, IFoA
  • Stephen Timms MP – Chair, Work and Pensions Select Committee


Polly Mackenzie - Chief Executive, Demos
