What's next for social pensions?

As the biggest financial investment you make (apart from a house), you should probably put a lot of thought into which pension to choose.

We should also now be entering a world of increased empowerment to choose our pensions. However, how many of us really are doing this yet? What would we do if we could see our funds invested in causes that really mean something to us? If we had a Northern Powerhouse pension fund, the Education4All pension fund or the Better Jobs pension fund…

In a paper published today and in an article published by Pensions Age, I look at what a social pension fund in the UK might look like in practice. I look at how we can use a model with a track record in France to build this, how big the market could be and what it could do for everyday savers.
