- The average director's pension pot (transfer value) has risen by £400,000 in the past year to £3.8m.
- The average accrued pension of nearly £228,000 is worth 26 times the average occupational pension of £8,736.
- Most directors' pensions schemes build up pensions at least twice as fast as those of their staff - usually at a rate of 1/30th a year compared to 1/60th or 1/80th for ordinary staff.
- Directors in defined contribution schemes received average contributions from their employers of £134,760 a year, worth 19% of their salaries - three times the average contribution rate made for employees.
