Retirement is changing and it has never been more important to understand how the changes are impacting providers and savers. Our strategic research programme is designed to provide clarity on emerging policy issues as well as the requirements and behaviours of savers.

We aim to be thought leaders in pensions research as well as an authority on other types of savings and investments used in retirement. We use our evidence base to effectively lobby government and help with policy development.
