In January 2021, the latest instalment of ‘New Choices, Big Decisions’ was launched. This new research has been conducted by The People’s Pension and State Street Global Advisors – 5 years on from the introduction of Pensions Freedoms. It centres around interviews with 50 savers and shows how policymakers, and the industry as a whole, have built a system that relies on unrealistic assumptions around how people behave to work effectively.
