NEST Insight conference 2019 – Thursday 4 July 2019, London

It’s now over a year since the roll-out of auto enrolment came to an end. We know that the initiative has so far been a huge success, helping 10 million people to save for their retirement. But, what do we know about the impact it’s had on the day-to-day financial lives of this new generation of savers? And, what can be done to help those who have fallen through the net?

Our fourth annual NEST Insight conference will bring together academics, policy makers and industry to dig beneath the headline data and explore how auto enrolment has affected people’s savings behaviours and wider financial lives, while questioning what lessons can be learned from comparable models around the world. We’ll then turn our lens on those not benefiting from the savings system and consider how we can make long-term savings more inclusive of some harder to reach groups.

Together, we’ll move the conversation forwards and explore practical solutions to help improve retirement outcomes for the ‘DC generation’.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Professor David Laibson, the Robert I. Goldman Professor of Economics at
    Harvard University
  • Ida Rademacher, the Vice President at the Aspen Institute and Executive Director
    of the Aspen Institute Financial Security Program
  • Dr Hayley James, Researcher at The University of Manchester Institute for Collaborative Research on Ageing (MICRA)
  • Helen Undy, Director at Money and Mental Health
  • Iona Bain, Founder of the Young Money Blog
