ABSTRACT
The article discusses Aon Consulting's analysis of Great Britain's pension assets in 2009. According to Aon, even though the pension assets have increased for the third month in a row, but for many workers, projected annual retirement income levels are still significantly lower compared to two years ago. Senior consultant Richard Strachan says that the company is urging these workers to take positive action to ensure an acceptable standard of living in retirement.
