Tapper's Pension Playpen relaunches as fintech

Industry blog The Pension Playpen is relaunching as a fintech company to provide support to all sectors of the pensions industry.

From February, the group will become a platform where pension professionals can network and share research as well as other pensions information.

The site will be free initially to all subscribers followed by subscription options at a date date based on the services required by each user.

There will be regular contributions from founder Henry Tapper, who is also chief executive of research group AgeWage, as well as key industry experts such as former pensions minister Sir Steve Webb and Margaret Snowden, chief executive of the Pension Scams Industry Group.

The Pension Playpen was founded in 2015 to promote auto enrolment solutions for employers and providers.

Mr Tapper said: “We are delighted to be relaunching the Pension Playpen which has been completely overhauled and will offer all involved within the pensions industry the chance to have their say via blogs.

He added: “In addition the Pension Playpen will offer the opportunity for users to connect, share, learn and research via the new site. The offering will also provide breakout rooms, tender posts and job opportunities”.
