Data Bulletin: March 2018 - Pensions and retirement income market

Our Data Bulletins seek to provide new insight into the different data that we collect and use – from data about the markets we regulate, consumer behaviour and our own operations.

Retirement income changes over the last two years.

Why are we publishing this?

The Data Bulletin is our main channel for the publication and analysis of data stories, released around once a quarter.

This issue of the Data Bulletin focuses on how the pensions and retirement income market is evolving.

This is the fifth update to our regular market data, the Retirement Income Data Request (RIDR), but the first time we have a wealth of new data from our Financial Lives Survey published in October 2017, to explore alongside the market data.

While a lot of activity is taking place in this sector, when we look at these two data sources together it is evident that consumers may not always have confidence or understanding if their choice is the right one.
