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:
  • Do you agree with government proposals to potentially disqualify or fine directors which avoid pension obligations through pre-pack administrations or ‘phoenix’ companies?;
  • The PLSA has reiterated calls for a mandatory authorisation regime for all pension schemes, starting with the smallest, to help avoid scams. Do you agree?;
  • Should the mandatory tenders for fiduciary management proposed by the CMA be run on a closed or open basis?;
  • The Pensions Regulator is encouraging DB schemes to match dividends with deficit repair contributions. Do you think this is right?; and
  • Over half of DC asset managers will miss their cost disclosure deadlines, according to research by LCP. Should DC schemes remove a manager if they are unable to disclose transaction costs within a reasonable period of time?
