|Title||Financialization and later life financial (in)security: the Twice Migrant Gujarati households of west London|
Given all recent UK government policies encouraging financial provision for later life such as auto-enrolment and the lack of specific research on pensions with regard to ethnic minorities, we seek to remedy this gap in part. Specifically, our ongoing research focuses on the financial provision for later life of a particular group of women as representatives of their households, the Twice Migrant Oshwal Jain Gujaratis of west London. Inevitably, in the face of the financialization of the everyday in the UK (Martin, 2002), we ask how they deal with provision for their later life financial security? We argue as to the importance of situating the community in both time and space so as to understand the issues involved, something facilitated by our autoethnographic (Becker, 2014; Ellis, Adams and Bochner, 2011) approach whereby one of the authors is also a full member of the community being studied.
