The CBI has commissioned research by independent economic consultants Oxford Economics into the impact of proposed EU pension changes. The report finds that the Solvency II-style rules would force £350bn of extra costs on UK businesses and cut the value of pensions. A shift in pension funds' financial portfolios away from equity would pose additional risks to the economy, by weakening the ability of small companies to raise money for expansion and by increasing the risk of business liquidation. Furthermore, investment in lower return-seeking assets by pension funds would lead to higher deficits which in turn would result in further calls on employer funds.
