This morning the Financial Conduct Authority and The Pensions Regulator published a joint strategy aimed at strengthening their relationship and delivering better outcomes for those saving for and approaching retirement. Commenting on the launch Steve Webb, Director of Policy at Royal London said:

“It is a good sign when regulators work together to make sure that they are pulling in the same direction. All too often government and regulators investigate individual financial products or specific points in people’s lives such as retirement. These plans are helpful because they will look at the whole of our ‘pensions journey’ - from starting work and being enrolled into a pension, through building up a pension pot and making choices at retirement and through retirement. This should help them to see the bigger picture and produce better outcomes in the long term”.
