Responsible Investment as a Motivator for Generation DC

There have been significant changes in the UK pension landscape in recent years following government action to dramatically increase participation rates. The policy of automatically enrolling eligible employees into a pension scheme has tackled some of the structural changes required. However, we can be under no illusion that it has been a silver bullet for the challenges of engagement and contributions when it comes to pension savings. In this report we examine the role responsible investing (RI) can play in tackling these issues. This report is focused on the first cohort of people that will rely predominantly on their defined contribution (DC) pension savings in retirement. Generation DC is made up of people in the millennial age group, currently aged between 22 and 38. The financial situation of millennials is frequently discussed, from their parents’ role in their finances to their spending on avocado toast. But when it comes to pensions, how do younger savers really feel about their financial future? Much research has been done indicating that younger people take issues that impact our environment and society more seriously than previous generations. As a result, we wanted to explore the role that RI could play in bringing about changes in pension saving.
