Jamie will discuss key aspects of the UK’s track record for developing retirement income solutions, outlining the areas that are mature and developing in terms of policy and implemented solutions. The UK retirement journey has taken a different path to Australia, most recently driven by the introduction of the Pensions Freedoms reforms.

Jason will share the conclusions from Aberdeen Standard Investment’s recent Australian retirement income industry consultation sessions. The results highlight where the industry feels more work needs to be done to prepare for and develop a comprehensive retirement income framework and solutions. There are learnings from the UK retirement income experience that apply to Australia.
