Pinsent Masons
Jan 2017 United Kingdom Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Legislation, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies)
In the first annual survey of the state of pension regulation, Pinsent Masons and The Pensions Institute conclude that current intervention levels by the Pensions Regulator are adding unnecessary costs for many schemes.
