PensionsEurope launches pensions show in partnership with ITN

PensionsEurope has launched its pensions programme that it co-produced with ITN Productions Industry News.

The programme was launched at its annual conference held online today, 9 June, in which delegates saw a shortened vesion of the show titled, Investing in the Future. It has been made to raise awareness and understanding of the importance of good pension planning, the vital role of workplace pensions and the opportunities and challenges for future pension investments.

The population of Europe is set to increase to 520 million people in 2070 with 41 million fewer people working 50 years from now. Additionally, the effects of the 2020 global pandemic are likely to reverberate around the global economy threatening longer-term repercussions such as recession, bankruptcy and rising unemployment, the association warned.

Anchored by ITN Productions Industry News presenter, Sharon Thomas, Investing in the Future explores pension opportunities and planning, alternative investments, how ethical investments are changing the pensions landscape and the challenges and trends for 2021 and beyond. The news-style format combines key sector interviews, news items and sponsored editorial profiles.

PensionsEurope secretary general/CEO, Matti Leppälä, joins the programme to discuss the importance of workplace and personal funded pensions and pension planning, why people increasingly need to save more for their pension, problems which gender pensions gap and geographical pensions disparity present and what the future has in store for pension investments.

Commenting, Leppälä said: “We hope this programme, which we have put together with the great expertise of ITN Productions Industry News reaches many and helps to increase people’s interest in their pensions. It is important to think and act ahead, and recognise the difference the money they save can do for them and for the wider society.”
