In this episode of Pioneering Pensions, we have a conversation with David John on how the US has addressed some of the important topics that we are struggling with here in the UK. This ranges from coverage and emergency savings, to consolidation of small pension pots and ways to convert pension savings to income. In short, the same questions that are on the top of the UK pension policy agenda.
