News in brief - 14 January 2022

Aviva has launched a pension snapshot feature on the MyAviva app.

The feature uses digital technology to give customers a personalised summary of their pension over the past 12 months, showing pension fund value, investment performance, retirement age, and a forecast of the potential value and income at retirement. It aims to help customers better engage with and understand their pensions, sharing similarities with other popular ‘year in review’ features offered by other services, such as fitness and music apps. Customers who have been included in the initial roll-out will have until 31 January 2022 to view their Aviva pension snapshot, with plans to potentially make the feature available to more pension customers over the next six months.

Envestnet Yodlee has partnered with The Pension Lab to help workers view their pensions in one place.

The partnership will allow The Pension Lab to utilise Envestnet Yodlee’s account aggregation API to provide secure user permissioned data access to open finance accounts, in turn allowing consumers to view all of their different pension pots in one place in a pensions dashboard style. The solution is expected to help address issues around multiple and lost pension pots, and “expedite matters" for a solution, as work on the government pension dashboard project continues.

Newton Investment Management has launched the Sustainable Global Emerging Markets Strategy.

It marks the eighth sustainable Newton strategy to be made available to UK investors, and will seek to combine Newton’s expertise in responsible investing with its existing £1.8bn emerging markets strategy. Managed by Newton global emerging markets portfolio managers, Ian Smith and Paul Birchenough, the strategy targets emerging-market investment opportunities in companies that are proactively seeking to manage social and environmental factors well to generate sustainable returns. This includes solution providers tackling pressing social and environmental needs, best in class operators, and companies committed to investing in and positively adapting to future environmental and social needs.
