PensionsEurope comments on the result of UK referendum on EU membership

Janwillem Bouma, Chair of PensionsEurope said:

"PensionsEurope regrets the UK's decision to leave the European Union but we respect the outcome of the referendum. 

Pension funds across Europe now need to have a clear view of what will happen over the next few years to provide much-needed certainty to pension funds and pension savers. The UK Government and EU institutions must work together to develop a clear plan and timetable of next steps. 

Pension funds invest in markets across Europe, and it is important that this can continue to be the case. We need this to support pension funds and for the security of millions of pension fund members and pensioners across Europe.

The UK Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association remains an important and valued member of PensionsEurope."
