The PMI's Master Trust Working Party has published the results of a survey it conducted asking master trusts for their views on issues and barriers facing the industry such as the regulatory framework, the adoption of technology, and whether there is a skills shortage among both providers and regulators. According to the results, 93% of respondents said that the master trust authorisation regime is to be welcomed, while 87% felt that the regime would accelerate the consolidation of the providers. The report also revealed that 60% of master trusts surveyed believe that there will be no more than 20 master trust providers in five years.

Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA)
15 Oct 2018 United Kingdom Automatic Enrolment, Master Trusts, Scheme Issues & Trends
According to figures from the PLSA, the vast majority of savers have continued to pay into their pensions, despite the rise in minimum automatic enrolment contributions in April.

2018 UK Pension Strategy Survey Report
UK Pension Strategy Survey Report
Willis Towers Watson
9 Oct 2018 United Kingdom Master Trusts, Pensioners & Retirement, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Scheme Issues & Trends
Willis Towers Watson has published the 2018 edition of its UK Pension Strategy Survey Report. The report is based upon the findings of a survey in which almost 200 organisations in the UK were asked about their plans to evolve their pension and benefits policies and programmes in relation to three key areas, including their strategy for DC provision and proposed changes to plan design in DB schemes that are still open to future accrual. According to the survey's results, four in ten employers view cost control as a key priority when shaping their future benefit provision, and although 30% of organisations are looking to increase employee choice and flexibility in relation to the benefits that they offer, less than 10% currently provide employees with the flexibility to use the employer's pension contributions for other financial priorities.
