Just one week until #NestInsight2022
Our annual conference returns this summer on Thursday 7 July with a full day of live-streamed sessions available to watch here. We’ll be bringing together academics, industry experts and policymakers to share research insights and foster debate on issues around retirement and broader financial security.
Join Nest Insight’s sixth annual conference to listen and take part in these important conversations:
|10:30 – 10:45||Welcome address Read More|
|10:45 – 12:00||Panel discussion: What role do employers play in supporting employee financial wellbeing and how might it evolve in the future? Read More|
UK pension regulations mandate minimum pension contributions to be made into an individual’s pension by both employers and employees. Beyond this, there are a wide range of approaches to supporting employees to save enough to achieve an adequate outcome in retirement through different pension contributions structures. Employers are also increasingly thinking about how to support broader employee financial wellbeing, particularly in the current economic context. But, to what extent is it an employer’s role to support their employees’ financial security? In what ways could an employer have most impact? And what are the barriers to employers doing more?
In this session we will share some early findings from our research programme, supported by abrdn Financial Fairness Trust, exploring opportunities for innovation and voluntary increases in employer contributions to pensions and other financial workplace benefits, and feature a range of different employer perspectives on these questions.
|14:00 – 15:15||Panel discussion: Building wealth and assets in lower income households Read More|
The UK’s auto enrolment programme has created near-universal participation in the private pensions system, dramatically expanding access to one aspect of wealth-building for low- and moderate-income (LMI) households. At the other end of the spectrum, we’ve increasingly focused on supporting short-term financial resilience through tools to support emergency saving. But what about everything else in between? How should we think about the transition from financial resilience through to building wealth and assets? What barriers to building wealth exist for LMI households? Which forms of wealth could or should they be focused on, and what policy and/or market solutions are needed to support these goals?
This panel will take a broad view of household finances, exploring the challenges inherent in different forms of work, the structural challenges in the housing market and what all this means for wealth-building among LMI households.
|15:30 – 16:10||Keynote from Iona Bain: Financial wellbeing in a cost of living crisis Read More|
