Sometimes the headlines on pensions and finance require an appropriate amount of humour. For example, the headline in this week’s Guardian that announced a 10 year low in dealings on the Stock Exchange. When was this measured? Last week. The final few days of the Olympics on home territory. Come on guys!
Or the recent headline in Professional Pensions magazine telling us that employers expect to see an ageing workforce. Yes…. Tomorrow they will be older than today.
The most obvious pension headlines though relate to communications. Journalist after journalist expresses surprise that the general public know little or nothing on the subject. When we have to struggle with the quantity of pension jargon proposed by the DWP in their glossary of auto-enrolment terms, it's no surprise.
