go This is done as after last year’s outrage over high fees, and to make sure that the millions of people who will start saving into a workplace pension (due to auto-enrolment) get a good deal. Pensions minister Steve Webb explains that it is about giving savers confidence and making sure they are getting a good value for their money.


Mr Webb explains that as millions of people will start saving for the first time in their life, it is important to give them confidence that their money is well taken care of and that they know which charges they will have to pay. He says that is also why they now chose to ban companies from charging consultancy fees automatically on members, as they end up paying for their employer to get advice, not themselves.

Dr Ros Altmann, a former pensions adviser to the government, praises the move to ban consultancy fees. She says that they were a huge scandal in the making, and that it is entirely right for them to go. Others who raised voices in agreement are Adam Phillips, chairman of the Consumer Panel, and head of pensions research at Hargreaves Lansdown Tom McPhail. Mr McPhail also said these reforms would help pensions regain their image, and would lessen peoples’ fear of getting ripped off.
