Long Finance’s Distributed Futures research programme has produced a report entitled “Smart Ledgers & Collective Defined Contribution Pensions”, the latest in a series of exciting projects in the programme. Long Finance has agreed to invite readers of this blog to the report launch and discussion on Wednesday, 25 July, from 08:45 to 10:45. The event will offer the opportunity to join the discussion on the findings of the report.
“Smart Ledgers & Collective Defined Contribution Pensions” is part of Long Finance’s Distributed Futures research programme into Smart Ledgers and wider technology. Smart Ledgers are seen by many as the ‘next big thing’ in technology. They’re based on a combination of mutual distributed ledgers (aka blockchain: multi-organisational databases with a super audit trail, used since 2009 in cryptocurrencies) with embedded programming and sensing, thus permitting semi-intelligent, autonomous transactions. Long Finance’s Distributed Futures research programme is sponsored by the Cardano Foundation.
The aim of this paper is to provide an overview of how and where Smart Ledgers could be used in pensions, and in particular how pension schemes could be administered using such technologies. Smart Ledgers are likely to be useful in all forms of pension structure e.g., defined benefit, defined contribution, hybrid schemes, and collective defined contribution. However, the way in which Smart Ledgers could serve as a platform for each form of pension, will differ based on the unique characteristics of the different types of pension arrangement. The research has been led by Dr Con Keating, Head of Research at Brighton Rock Group, Associate Professor Iain Clacher of the University of Leeds, and Research Fellow David McKee of the University of Leeds.
