Summit set for pensions minister to explain reforms

Money Marketing and Cicero Consulting are holding a summit at Westminster with pensions minister James Purnell as the Government prepares to launch its second White Paper.

Purnell will talk about the effects of the reforms to an invited audience, who will then be able to question him. Other panellists include IMA chief executive Richard Saunders and a leading IFA.

The event will be held on October 12 at the Foreign Press Association in Carlton House Terrace, London.

The Government’s second White Paper on pensions will focus on personal accounts. The Government is also expected to publish its deregulatory review on occupational pensions in the next few weeks, which will also be debated at the summit.

Cicero Consulting direc-tor Iain Anderson says: “The purpose of the pension summit is to help policymakers during this period of reform by allowing them to hear the views and opinion of the IFA community and the wider industry.

“The timing of the event could not be better, with the personal accounts White Paper set for an autumn publication.”
