Retirement Line is proud to have been invited to feature in the 2018/19 Parliamentary Review. This is an annual series of publications run by cross party politicians featuring articles from organisations and individuals who are experts and have become outstanding leaders in their fields.
Our article, written by David Slater, Retirement Line’s Chief Executive Officer, explains how we have responded to challenges within our industry. It explores the current state of retirement income provision following the pension freedoms implemented in April 2015, drawing on the latest statistics from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
David’s article also shares his belief that facing a decision about what to do with their pension savings can be a most confusing and stressful experience for many people. Accordingly, they need treating with care, empathy and patience, as well as being given comprehensive information about their options.
Providing this type of caring service, together with securing the highest guaranteed retirement income for our clients, is of paramount importance to Retirement Line. It is also a priority for the FCA, who are taking steps to ensure the industry as a whole improves performance in this area to ensure consumers avoid poor outcomes.
Articles in the Parliamentary Review are from businesses across all sectors of the UK reporting how their performances compare with industry standards. Through these contributions, the Review will demonstrate how these organisations have become outstanding leaders in their field.
The Review also contains articles from prominent political figures and impartial summaries of the year in Westminster and Britain at large. Theresa May, Philip Hammond and numerous other Cabinet and senior ministers are participating in this year’s Review. Many of the nation's most established business leaders and most talented entrepreneurs have participated in the Review over recent years.
Publication of the Parliamentary Review is scheduled for spring 2019. Total readership is upward of 500,000 policymakers, including MPs, Peers at the House of Lords, chief executives, vice presidents, relevant clubs and associations, film and TV executives, and many more.
As well as contributing to the Parliamentary Review, Retirement Line is also invited to attend a celebratory gala event at the House of Commons, meeting with senior politicians and representatives from other leading UK businesses.
