Default solutions advocated by leading pension providers vary significantly in their objectives and designs
2008 PensionDCisions DC Default Provider Survey
PensionDCisions
3 Oct 2008 United Kingdom Scheme Issues & Trends, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Investment - Management
The 2008 PensionDCisions DC Default Provider Survey (in association with FT Business) has shown that expert opinion varies widely regarding long-term investment strategy, and that outcomes delivered to members will vary widely depending on the solution selected for them. The study, which provides independent comparison of the DC default solutions advocated by large UK providers, revealed that there is a significant gap between the practice endorsed by the survey respondents and the solutions in place in large UK DC plans today.

31 Mar 2008 United Kingdom Trustees, Scheme Issues & Trends, Investment - Performance
PensionDCisions has issued its 2008 Default Investment Strategy Survey, which provides an independent comparison of the design and performance of DC default strategies used by large UK employers and describes broader plan characteristics and attitudes to defaulting. On average, the survey finds some 80% of members are in the default investment option which, in more than three quarters of the plans, allocates members’ assets entirely to equities in the initial stage.

Sep 2007 United Kingdom Scheme Issues & Trends, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Investment - General, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies)
PensionDCisions, an independent provider of benchmark reporting for DC pension plans, has released its 2007 Default Investment Strategy Survey, which covers the default investment design and performance in 31 large UK DC pension plans with a combined asset base of £6.8bn. The data indicates that decisions by trustees and employers regarding default investment design can have a very significant impact on the value delivered to DC members and sponsoring shareholders. Even where trustees and employers may think they have chosen the ‘standard option’ of global equity, the survey reveals a difference between best and worst benchmark returns actually selected by respondents in this category of 8.2 percentage points per annum over the last five years. This is explained by variations in regional allocations and small cap versus large cap proportions.
