Pensions Report 2022
Introducing the report
Welcome to Boring Money’s 2022 consumer report on pensions.
The aim of this report is to provide a detailed look at consumer attitudes towards pensions, product ownership, and explore the appetite for pension engagement and approaches to pension pot consolidation.
