Professional Pensions
30 Apr 2014 United Kingdom Taxation, Savings, Investment - Venture Capital & Private Equity, Investment - Performance, Administration
Professional Pensions has published the latest edition of Pensions Buzz, a weekly survey which monitors the attitudes and opinions of the industry. This week's questions include:
  • Should pension managers be able to give guidance to scheme members?;

  • Is government policy too heavily influenced by lobby groups with a vested interest in increasing the amount of regulation and the need for consultancy advice?;

  • Would a parliamentary guarantee of the 25% tax-free cash allowance remaining open encourage future pension saving?;

  • With a new era of DC decumulation around the corner, should we change how we think of pension income from being 'for the rest of your life', to 'until your fund runs out'?; and

  • Schemes are examining the use of synthetic equities. Have the risks of such derivatives been underestimated in the quest for yield?

Just Retirement

Just Retirement has published research entitled "The role of housing equity in retirement planning", which suggests that greater awareness and understanding of equity release, as well as promotion, could help more people enjoy greater comfort in retirement. The research revealed that in the run up to retirement, expectations of future income levels are unrealistic, with many people being disappointed to find out how little income they will actually receive from their pension savings.

Many UK Pension Funds Set to Increase Allocation to Private Equity
The current and future private equity investment behaviour of major UK institutions
Centre for Management Buyout Research
26 Sep 2005 United Kingdom Investment - Venture Capital & Private Equity
A study of 239 institutions, which included pension funds and insurance companies, conducted by the Centre for Management Buyout Research (CMBOR) and sponsored by Adveq, looks at the current and future private equity investment behaviour of major UK institutions. The survey shows that the next 2-5 years will see the actual number of UK institutions investing in private equity slightly fall from 41% to 38%. However, this will be offset by an increase in the proportion of total assets under management being allocated to private equity.
