PensionsEurope partners with ITN to co-produce pensions show

PensionsEurope has partnered with ITN Productions Industry News to co-produce a new television programme that aims to raise awareness of the role of workplace pensions and other employment-related retirement provisions.

The show, Investing in the Future, will shine a spotlight on the need for individuals to manage their own long-term financial security.

It will explore key industry themes including awareness and education around pension opportunities and planning; the post-pandemic response and the effects on investments and pensions; addressing the gender pension gap; how ethical investments are changing the pension landscape; the latest innovations and efficiencies driving the sector forward and how the industry is fostering diversity and inclusion to attract the next generation of talent.

PensionsEurope wants to increase awareness as the UK and Europe population is increasing rapidly. The European population is set to increase to 520 million people in 2070 with 41 million fewer people working 50 years from now. Additionally, the association believes that 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.

Investing in the Future will be anchored by an ITN Productions Industry News presenter, the programme will combine interviews with the industry’s leading figures, news-style reports and sponsored editorial profiles. It will launch at the PensionsEurope Annual Conference, 9-10 June.

Commenting, PensionsEurope secretary-general/CEO, Matti Leppälä, said: “We are very happy to partner with ITN Productions Industry News. It is important for people to know and understand the challenges they will face with their pensions and to think about what can and needs to be done. We hope these programmes will reach many, not just pension professionals but especially also the wider audience.”

ITN Productions Industry News head, Nina Harrison-Bell, said: “We are delighted to partner with PensionsEurope to make a programme which raises awareness of the importance of investing in workplace pension schemes and personal investments. There is still a lack of understanding around pension opportunities and we hope this programme provides a platform to address the knowledge gap and helps to secure futures.”
