Savers must understand risks of chancellor’s pension fund reforms

In his Mansion House speech earlier this month, Jeremy Hunt said some of the UK’s largest defined contribution pension schemes had agreed to commit 5 per cent of their default funds to unlisted equities by 2030.

Hunt said his aim was to enable the UK’s financial services sector to increase returns for pensioners, improve outcomes for investors and unlock capital for UK growth businesses but what are the risks and will schemes jump on board?
