Forum to discuss Sandler suite

This week, Money Marketing is launching a new initiative aimed at publicly airing the many issues surrounding the Sandler report and the subsequent action taken by the Government.

The Sandler Forum is not a campaign aimed solely at pointing out the negatives of the Sandler proposals but an opportunity to look at the issues from all angles representing the views of those for and against the proposed stakeholder suite of price-capped products.

Even though the Treasury has officially confirmed that it is planning to carry forward the Sandler review team&#39s flagship recommendation of a stable of simple, straightforward products, there are many questions left to be answered about their structure and distribution.

The Government says it is keen to enter into a discussion with the industry and for that reason we are keen to hear from you and publish your views.

In the coming weeks and months on the news and features pages of Money Marketing we will be looking at all aspects of the Sandler proposals, from the viability of a 1 per cent price cap to the wider macro-economic arguments about possible outflow of capital from the UK economy.
