DC scheme investment in illiquid and alternative assets
DC scheme investment in illiquid and alternative assets
Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
Mar 2019 United Kingdom Investment - General, Investment - Performance, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC)
In light of the Government's consultation on the ways to enable DC pension schemes to invest a higher proportion of funds into illiquid and alternative assets, the PPI has created a report that examines investment in less traditional assets and discusses how any potential challenges may be overcome. The report shows that 76% of DC assets are currently invested in bonds and equities but greater DC scheme investment in illiquid and alternative assets could potentially yield benefits to pension scheme members.
