Jul 2019 United Kingdom Administration, Public Sector Pensions, Scheme Issues & Trends
The Pensions Regulator has published the results of its fourth public service pensions annual governance and administration survey, based on research conducted by OMB Research on its behalf in November and December 2018.

The research also, however, highlighted areas for improvement, such as cyber security. 17% of schemes failed to report that they had controls in place restricting access to systems and data, while 18% did not report that they had systems controls to protect their cyber security such as firewalls, antivirus or software updates.

High charges eroding the income of pensioners by thousands
High charges eroding the income of pensioners by thousands
AJ Bell
10 May 2019 United Kingdom Administration, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
AJ Bell has produced research that compares the effects of the two extremes in pension drawdown charges cited by the FCA Retirement Outcomes Review final report, 0.4% at the lowest and 1.6% at the highest. AJ Bell's analysis found that a person with a 100,000 pension pot at age 65 who starts withdrawing 5,000 a year from their fund, and increases that each year in line with inflation, would receive 176,722 of income from their pot and their fund would last until the age of 92, based on the assumption of a 5% annual investment return and a 0.4% charge. By comparison if the charge were 1.6%, the individual would receive 144,225 in income and the fund would have run dry by the time they reached the age of 88.

Should I Stay or Should I Go? Understanding Opt Out Behaviour
The People's Pension and State Street Global Advisors
Dec 2018 United Kingdom Administration, Automatic Enrolment, Savings
Research from Ignition House, sponsored by The People's Pension and State Street Global Advisors, has looked into the drivers behind the decision not to save in a workplace pension. The research involved in-depth discussions with 30 people aged 22 to 60 who had been offered a workplace pension and chosen not to join or had joined their workplace pension and then chosen to stop contributing. According to the findings, the prominent reasons for opting out of a workplace pension scheme include timing, and also concern that the current modest contribution rates would not generate a retirement pot big enough to make a difference to their lives.
