Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
Mar 2019 United Kingdom Investment - General, Investment - Performance, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC)

The report shows that 76% of DC assets are currently invested in bonds and equities but greater DC scheme investment in illiquid and alternative assets could potentially yield benefits to pension scheme members.

Professional Pensions has published the latest edition of Pensions Buzz, a weekly survey which monitors the attitudes and opinions of the industry. This edition's questions include:
  • Should the DWP 'nudge' smaller, sub-1,000 member DC schemes to consolidate?;
  • The DWP wants DC trustees to set out a policy on illiquid investments and provide statistics on such investments. Do you agree with this approach?;
  • Should the DC default charge cap be amended to make it easier for trustees to invest in illiquid assets, which typically incur performance fees?;
  • Should all DC pension schemes and master trusts be required to publicly report the performance of their investment strategies/funds?; and
  • Do you think master trusts will improve member engagement?
