Last month Yes Kirkintilloch, Lenzie and the Villages brought together a panel of experts to talk about pensions in an independent Scotland. This is an important topic given that so many pension-age Scots are not yet convinced about independence.
IndyLive Radio recorded the event and we’re taking advantage of their on-demand platform to bring you the audio from the meeting.
Ken MacNeil, himself a financial advisor, chaired the meeting. And the panel were:
- Gordon MacIntyre-Kemp, of Believe in Scotland
- Bill Johnson, of Scottish Seniors Alliance
- Jim Walker, Chief Economist with Aletheia Capital
- Craig Dalzell, of Commonweal
Each member of the panel spoke briefly on the pros and cons of independence with respect to pension provision. That was followed by a very lively Q&A session. The panel didn’t agree with each other all the time which made the discussion all the more interesting.
