Summary

The defined contribution (DC) pensions market recorded a growth of 9.0% in terms of new business premiums in 2010, expanding at 5.6% and 7.7% respectively during 2011 and 2012. The growth was attributed to the declining membership of private-sector occupational defined benefit (DB) schemes, improving stock market returns and labor market conditions, as well as a rise in the minimum pension age and the state pension age (SPA).

New business premiums paid into individual and workplace pension DC schemes declined by 11.7% in 2008, dropping further by 17.9% in 2009. The recession severely damaged the ability of individuals to save for retirement. Employers were further discouraged to make contributions on behalf of their employees as they recorded a contraction in their finances. High charges eroding the value of pension pots and low annuity rates continued to serve as disincentives to save into a pension. The DC pensions market remained resilient, however, posting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 0.45% during the review period (2008 and 2012).

The market faced opposing dynamics as individual personal pensions new business declined at a CAGR of 6.1% between 2008 and 2012, whereas new business premiums paid into workplace DC pensions schemes grew at a CAGR of 7.7% over the same period. The growth in workplace pensions was attributed to the increased popularity of group personal (or contract-based) pensions (GPPs), far less onerous to run than occupational (trust-based) schemes.
