Who Watches the Watchers? Transparency and Accountability in Workplace Personal Pensions
Policy Report
ShareAction
Feb 2018 United Kingdom Advisers, Corporate Governance, Investment - Performance
Research by ShareAction has found that a large proportion of independent governance committees (IGCs), which were established by law in 2015 to represent the interests of UK pension savers, are failing to review whether savers are getting value for money from their schemes. According to the research, just under half of IGC reports did not provide data on how well savers' investments were performing, while almost a third did not state how much savers were being charged by their workplace pension provider.

Reclaiming Ownership
ShareAction
12 Mar 2016 United Kingdom Investment - General, Investment - Ethical and SRI, Automatic Enrolment, Advisers
ShareAction has published its first benchmarking survey of the UK's auto-enrolment workplace pensions market. The research examines the nine largest pension providers and ranks their default auto-enrolment funds on transparency, governance and responsible investment performance. According to the findings, a number of these providers are delegating almost all responsibility for the prudent stewardship of pension savings to asset managers, while only two of the providers surveyed have issued statements of compliance with the UK Stewardship Code as asset owners.

13 Nov 2013 United Kingdom Investment - General, Corporate Governance
Research published by ShareAction has called for individual savers to be given new rights to information that will close the "accountability gap" in the UK pensions industry. The report recommends that savers should be entitled to hold pension fund boards to account at annual meetings in the same way that individual shareholders can meet and challenge directors at AGMs.
