Conservative Party Conference: Infrastructure policy after Brexit: what role can long-term savings play?

The UK economy has proved resilient in the wake of June’s decision to leave the EU but Brexit also provides an ideal moment to address the country’s longstanding challenges, in particular  infrastructure and productivity. The UK is increasingly turning to institutional investors to provide the capital needed to deliver major infrastructure projects. Auto-enrolment and the roll out of ISA products will not only support pensioner wellbeing but also finance world-class infrastructure

Reform welcomed Andrew Jones, Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury, to explore the policy levers that might encourage more saving, how to ensure these funds are invested productively and the role of industry in facilitating reform.
