The Association of British Insurers' latest survey on the need among consumers for improved information about financial products has found continued strong demand for better quality.
About a third of the 2,200 respondents said that pensions benefitted from a quality mark, compared to about one-in-ten who said that investments and mortgages would similarly benefit.
However, the association also says that its survey did not differentiate between a regulated and un-regulated quality mark scheme.
The ABI's Raising Standards initiative has achieved a significant market share in the past couple of years.
It now claims 10 major brands servicing 11 million customers, or 36% of the industry.
And the need for improved information and communications is undoubtedly there: acording to ABI research, 44% of people with pensions do not understand their statements.
