Broker Talkback

Do you believe that personal accounts will launch on time despite current market turmoil?

No 75%
Yes 25%

No “Hopefully not. It is a rubbish idea and with current conditions it will be even worse. “

Andrew Martin, Key Benefits

Yes “There may be some tweaking in terms of the mechanics of the investments but I can’t see them abandoning the projected date of the launch.”

Shamir Ruparelia, Cloisters Financial Management

No “I suspect they will get pushed back. The Government has other things on its hands at the moment. If they do push it through, it will be a disaster.

Carl Melvin, Pension Transfer Solutions Mel Kenny Radcliffe & Newlands

Jeremy Creed, Creed Associates partner Robert Jackson, Jackson Financial Planning

Yes “I don’t think market volatility will affect personal accounts. I think things will have calmed down by then.”

Paul Sensicall, A D S Financial Planning

Yes “Personally, I think it will still go ahead under the current proposed timescale because whatever’s done helps bring down the benefit bill.”
