Ireland's too easy a target for the pensions industry fat-cats
GOOD on Joan Burton. Speaking at an insurance conference last week she said that pension industry charges are too high. One third of the value of a pension can be wiped out with commission and costs. For years, successive governments have been brow-beating us into taking out pensions. The fact that many people don't has been blamed on inertia and bad planning. But maybe as customers, we've just realised that pensions are a total rip-off.
