Workplace & pensions
Retirement savings funds are some of the largest and fastest growing investors in global capital markets. However, they also form part of an industry that is faced with a number of challenges. Providers are presented with strict and ever-changing regulatory requirements, difficulty with engaging members, an ageing population, volatility of returns and general economic instability.
In a fluctuating market, investors require the ability to vary their post-retirement income levels to suit their lifestyle, retain access to capital, possibly revert to beneficiaries on death and allow for a range of asset alternatives whilst invested.
The workplace & pensions industry, more than many other financial services sector, relies on flexible and easily configurable technology to remain competitive. Investment in modern, highly configurable, functionally-rich software is essential for providers to deliver the support their members and employees need. Superior technology that facilitates the automation of processes, with features that easily accommodate change, can deliver cost and labour efficiencies, helping providers swiftly and easily adjust to new regulatory requirements.
