Experian among fintech companies developing Pensions Dashboard

Pensions industry appoints six technology providers to develop a number of components for new digital service to streamline pension data on behalf of the Treasury

Posted 22 December 2016 by

Experian has been selected among five other fintech companies to support projects that will underpin a Pensions Dashboard digital service being built on behalf of HM Treasury.

The Association of British Insurers (ABI), which is managing the project with a view to launching the dashboard as a full service in 2019, has announced that it has chosen the companies that will work on developing components including a user interface and identity assurance functions.

Treasury economic secretary Simon Kirby welcomed the collaboration between the pensions industry and the fintech sector in order to devise a platform intended to provide greater clarity on individual savings and pensions pots.

“We are making great progress in ensuring people will have all the information they need in one place so they can plan more easily for their future,” he said. “This is a very positive development for consumers and I look forward to seeing a working prototype by March 2017.”
