Sir Hector Sants, Chair of the Money and Pensions Service, said:
“Our vision is a society with everyone making the most of their money and pensions. When nearly half of UK adults say that they don’t feel confident in making decisions about financial products and services, it’s essential that through the Pensions Dashboards we create a platform for people to engage more easily with their pensions throughout their lives.
“I look forward to working with Chris and the Industry Delivery Group, to ensure that through the Pensions Dashboards that people have access to the information they need, how they need it, in an accessible and user-friendly format, that they can rely on.”
Guy Opperman, Minister for Pensions and Financial Inclusion, said:
“Chris Curry has a wealth of experience driving forward innovation in the pensions industry. His appointment to lead the latest of our truly transformative reforms is an important moment.
“Pension dashboards will deliver a digital revolution, transforming how people plan for retirement by allowing everyone to see their savings online in one place.
“This is a pivotal year for the project. As industry begins to create and test consumer-facing models later this year, Chris and his team will have a crucial role in agreeing data standards and developing the technical architecture underpinning dashboards.”
Chris Curry, Principal of the Pensions Dashboards Industry Delivery Group, said:
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to be involved in something as important as the Pensions Dashboard. Building on the success so far of automatic enrolment, Pensions Dashboards have the potential to improve retirement outcomes for many people, and I look forward to leading the team driving this forward.”
