ABI produces pensions leaflet for consumers

The Association of British Insurers has produced a pensions and annuity leaflet in a bid to help consumers understand the market.

The leaflet, People Need Pensions, is designed to answer some key questions about pensions and annuities in the context of the current economic climate.
