DC master trusts are the most appropriate pension scheme for nearly 60% of employers, Buck research finds
DC master trusts are the most appropriate pension scheme for nearly 60% of employers
Buck
16 Jul 2019 United Kingdom Administration, Master Trusts, Scheme Issues & Trends, Technology & Systems
According to a survey conducted by Buck, 60% of employers consider master trusts to be the most suitable form of DC pension scheme for their business. The research identified that employers believe that master trusts enable them to provide a pension scheme that meets the needs of the modern workplace whilst also delegating formal responsibility for the management of the scheme to experts outside of their organisation. The survey also found that the majority of master trusts provide digital tools for communicating with and educating members, which 84% of employers identified as something that they wanted their pension scheme members to benefit from.
