From here to the FT: Jim Osborne’s thinking on pensions gets a wider airing

Posted on

I share this post by Jim Osborne on the Facebook page of the Scottish Banking and Finance Group:

The Financial Times has picked up a story about my proposals for an NPIF - see this piece in the "Pensions Expert" section of the FT today. Richard Murphy kindly gave me the opportunity for a two part guest post on his Tax Research UK blog a couple of weeks ago and it seems to have caused rather a stir amongst asset managers and other financial intermediaries. I was offered a "right of reply" so the article quotes what I said and has quoted me accurately.

Much (but not all) of the reaction is (unsurprisingly) hostile but it seems to have got folk talking.

I gather that Jim is preparing responses.

From my perspective, no guest post has had more impact than that.
