Savers Take Control

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

UKSA calls for independent thinkers to join us to change the savings investment chain for the better.

This may take a generation – too many vested interests, contributing too much in tax revenues, will make it so – but is vital to the long-term economic health and social cohesion of the UK.

The government’s tepid response to its own initiative for corporate governance reform – fundamental to removing the runaway train of executive remuneration and the stranglehold of short-term thinking on corporate strategy – indicates that there will be no effective change without new energy.

The essence of this new approach is that savers themselves must take control of the investment chain. It carries the banner Savers Take Control. Martin White, UKSA Director, laid out the issues in September 2017 at a symposium of the Transparency Task Force.
