Panel Discussion

Finance 2025: Savings and Investment

< return to all events

Romina Savova, PensionBee

In a world of increasing dependence on one's own personal resources to fund a larger life, individuals will have to save more, work those savings harder, and pay much more attention to fees and commissions, as well as to top-line returns. We have already seen a shift from high-cost active funds to low-cost passive investment, and robo-advice may drive costs down further. As may MiFID II, although so far, its impact has been mixed.

All of this (and more) will be covered in the second Finance 2025 joint programme with The London Institute of Banking & Finance. The intention is to look at the evolution of retail finance beyond the immediate problems of Brexit and political confusion, to see where the financial services sector is heading in the medium term, and what is driving change. The first panel discussion (on November 15) was on payments; this one focuses on what we do with and where we should put our money.

- Romina Savova set up PensionBee in March 2015, to offer UK savers access to a low-cost, easy-to-use, transparent, on-line pension platform that brings all a client's pensions into one pot. Although it is tech-based, PensionBee offers personal customer support and gets five stars from TrustPilot.
