After a week of exploring the role of consultancies in shaping the shift to DC benefits in #USS pensions with @felicitycallard and @CLIVEYB , this week I am delighted to announce the launch of the new "Picket Pensions Consultancy" (#PicketPC ) #ucustrike #usstrike
Anyone who needs a quick recap on how consultancies shape landscapes and appetites for risk might want to check in with the archiving of this thread by pensions expert @henryhtapper henrytapper.com/2018/03/08/the… #uss #ucustrike see also #ucustrike #usstrike
If you want a longer academic read on how consultancies are contributing to reshaping the direction of financial innovation around universities, and why this matters, you can can explore the synthesis of @CLIVEYB #ucustrike #usstrike
More technically, @MikeOtsuka demonstrates how the same actuarial figures can be used to draw different conclusions about the desirabality of DC or DB schemes for USS medium.com/@mikeotsuka/uu… #ucustrike #usstrike
Given it seems to @kcoxr "the path to defined contribution pension schemes is paved with duplicitous intentions” I've decided we need our own new pensions advisory consultancy: the "Picket Pensions Consultancy" (#PicketPC ) #ucustrike #usstrike
The Picket Pensions Consultancy" (#PicketPC ) will be 'Seeking to Address the Democractic Deficit around the Pensions Deficit', 'Returning Choice to our Injunction to Choose' and 'Challenging the 'Challenging the "DB good, DC bad" Viewpoint'' #ucustrike #usstrike
Our mission is to fill in the missing data from things like this presentation made to universities in 2015 on 'DB vs DC: what the public understands' that sought to 'Challenge the "DB good, DC bad" viewpoint' #ucustrike #usstrike
#PicketPC be arriving on the picket line tomorrow to explore your views on Q in this presentation:
What are the key issues for you in this changing landscapes of pensions?
What does "good" look like to you?
How do you want to be engaged and represented?
#ucustrike #usstrike
I'm now off to set up Picket Pension Consulting's IT infrastructure (buy pens) and to build our human capital resources (talk to people). We'll launch tomorrow. In meantime, do contribute to our terms of reference and engagement questions here using #PicketPC #ucustrike #usstrike
Small print: #PicketPC aims to inform debate about the values underpinning pension change & modelling. We take no responsibility for your retirement planning. As @henryhtapper suggests, insurers loathe to provide professional idenmity cover for that anyway ft.com/content/ccd364…
