15 July 2024 – By invitation only - Generation rent

An exclusive hybrid event at 10:30-14:00 BST with the Pensions Equity Group (PEG) and Independent Governance Group (IGG).

Only members with restricted access (ie. academics, asset owners, government and regulatory, independent advisers/trustees and sponsoring employers) can view this article. Please login or join to view.


Pensions are a social contract between generations, ensuring the future income requirements of members is essential, and it relies heavily on contributions and investments, as well as the financial resilience of those members. However, with younger generations continually squeezed by housing and living costs, facing low engagement in pension plans, and a decreasing rate of home ownership, it is crucial to address the policies and investments that support financial resilience.

Twelve years after the successful introduction of auto enrolment (AE), it is time to explore the necessary policy changes and alignments between pensions and housing to ensure AE's continued success. As an increasing number of people approach retirement without owning their homes, we must take action now to safeguard the future of generation rent.

This event, being held at Pinsent Masons's head office in London, will feature:

  1. Insights from the asset owner, adviser and asset manager community.
  2. Perspectives from IGG and Pensions for Purpose.
  3. Views from the Pensions Policy Institute on current policy issues surrounding housing benefits and pensions.
  4. Breakout discussions considering how we make long term savings in the interest of everyone.
  5. LCP's exploration of challenges and potential solutions for the next generation.
  6. A concluding session by Kim Brown from PEG.
  7. Networking lunch.

Don't miss this opportunity to engage with experts and discuss the vital steps needed to enhance the financial resilience of pension fund members in the face of evolving economic challenges.

Meet with peers, senior finance figures, Pensions for Purpose, PEG, IGG, Pinsent Masons and the asset owner community to further the dialogue on current government policy and industry practices that are compounding inequality.

This is a hybrid event, so please register your attendance in-person or online by Thursday 11 July to secure your place; space is limited, so please book early. Contact [email protected].
