|United Kingdom (UK) Pre-Retirement Pensions Market 2020|
|Published: October 2, 2020||Content info:||
The total UK pensions market grew 16.1% to £16.4bn annual premium equivalent (APE) in 2019. Workplace pensions drove growth as minimum pension contributions increased to 8%. Direct benefit to direct contribution transfers continue as companies de-risk and individuals take advantage of pension freedoms. COVID-19 will bring uncertainty to saving for retirement. The UK economy has officially entered into recession and disposable incomes are set to fall as unemployment rises. This will force many individuals to temporarily stop making pension contributions as they cut non-essential spending. The UK pensions market is projected to contract at the start of the forecast period before returning to growth.
