NEST Insight conference 2017: beyond longevity

On Wednesday 5 July, this year’s NEST Insight conference moved beyond the headlines to explore what longevity means for the ‘defined contribution generation’. Global leaders from the worlds of academia, public policy and the pensions industry explored: 

  • What does later life look like for those people, largely on lower-to-middle incomes, whose retirement income will depend on defined contribution pensions?
  • What challenges and opportunities will shape their long-term financial well-being?
  • What does an ‘optimal’ mix of savings products and behaviours look like for this group as they pick their way through competing calls on their income?
