Earlier in 2016 we commissioned Ipsos Mori to conduct research into the views, needs and preferences of pension scheme members.

The research covered four topical themes – communications & engagement, value for members, education & advice and responsible investment.

The report has had coverage in publications such as The Money Observer, Pensions Age, Employee Benefits and The Actuary.
