Flex first-fix later – Pension PlayPen coffee morning today at 10.30am

I will be chairing this session which is hard luck on Phil Boyle as I have a number of questions about his and Steve Webbs’ proposal and am sceptical the plan can work.

  1. Isn’t this a fees-fest for advisers?
  2. How does a consumer ensure there’s an adviser around late in life who arranges the “fix later”
  3. What’s wrong with CDC? (see Adrian Boulding’s latest thinking here)

So look out for the usual rumbustious meeting which should provide a stimulating start to the delayed working week!

Phil Boyle is one of the best pension consultants I know – and I reckon this coffee morning – the third on the trot for LCP, is a “must attend” !

  1. John Mather says:

    Henry, until the next market correction, the number of advisers in the 5-50 adviser firms will slowly increase according to trends issued by the FCA There are around 27,000 for the 6% who make use of the service. You could increase that number if those giving guidance and funded by the tax payer get authorised to give advice. You could then set the fee at a means tested low figure and control costs.

    The significant amount of energy wasted on asking questions with no answer could be moved in the direction; of a measurable improvement in solutions.

    Try using the “measure what matters” approach by John Doerr, it worked for the Gates Foundation and Google.
