Giving pensions the kiss of life
Politicians are urged to KISS - "Keep It Simple, Stupid" and with good reason. We Humans are not endowed with the prodigious information-processing capacity of a computer; far from it.
They haven't done that well with pensions legislation.
The basic concept of a pension is simple enough: A portion of today's income is saved and invested for a return which exceeds the cost of looking after it and inflation; it's tax relief that is the main source of complification. It will take more than the kiss of life to make pensions really simple now.
In this latest vlog, which you can watch, listen to or read by clicking the links above, Aries Director Ian Neale discusses two 'kisses' which could boost pension saving.
