Pension body calls for detail on Scottish independence

The leading UK pension body has called for more detail on how an independent Scotland would manage its finances.

Joanne Segars, Chief Executive of the National Association of Pension Funds, said clarity "mattered" to both pension providers and savers.

Ms Segars told BBC Radio 5 live's Wake Up to Money: "Pension funds are long term creatures and we need some certainty in order to plan for the long-term."

The Yes campaign has claimed the cost of pensions would drop and the state pension would keep up with the cost of living under independence.
