Willis Towers Watson
9 Oct 2018 United Kingdom Master Trusts, Pensioners & Retirement, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Scheme Issues & Trends
Willis Towers Watson has published the 2018 edition of its UK Pension Strategy Survey Report. The report is based upon the findings of a survey in which almost 200 organisations in the UK were asked about their plans to evolve their pension and benefits policies and programmes in relation to three key areas, including their strategy for DC provision and proposed changes to plan design in DB schemes that are still open to future accrual. According to the survey's results, four in ten employers view cost control as a key priority when shaping their future benefit provision, and although 30% of organisations are looking to increase employee choice and flexibility in relation to the benefits that they offer, less than 10% currently provide employees with the flexibility to use the employer's pension contributions for other financial priorities.
