United Kingdom (UK) Pre-Retirement Pensions Market 2020


The total UK pensions market grew 16.1% to 16.4bn annual premium equivalent (APE) in 2019. Workplace pensions drove growth as minimum pension contributions increased to 8%. Direct benefit to direct contribution transfers continue as companies de-risk and individuals take advantage of pension freedoms. COVID-19 will bring uncertainty to saving for retirement.

The UK pensions market is projected to contract at the start of the forecast period before returning to growth.
