Uk pension experts.
Can we - UK employees, select where our company pension is invested and pick the stocks and shares we want to invest in, as US employees can with their 401k?

I see US based posts of consultants earning $200k+ as a senior or principle consultant. Out of curiosity can Londoners (or just people in the UK in general) hit these kinda figures and higher at these levels or is £200k+ reserved for C-Level execs?

I'm a former strategy consultant (left as an M), few years in industry now, with an M7 MBA.
