DC analytics can improve members’ retirement outcomes
At a glance
There is increasing acknowledgement that the information held by employers may not be sufficient to design DC arrangements that align with the needs of their employees
Employers are looking for ways to improve retirement outcomes for employees where there is often limited scope for them to increase their own contributions
In addition the higher expenses associated with running schemes with a wide range of options are not always matched with higher levels of employee engagement or appreciation
An analytical data-driven approach can help employers design more tailored DC arrangements by analysing employee characteristics and better understanding their behaviours and needs
Analytics can also help determine the best way to engage and communicate with employees to maximise participation
This helps employers spend their pensions budget efficiently by offering employees what they need, improving their retirement provision
