What will the FCA's new rules mean for DB to DC pension transfers?
What will the FCA's new rules mean for DB to DC pension transfers?
LCP and Royal London
Oct 2018 United Kingdom Advisers, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Transfers
Lane Clark & Peacock and Royal London have published a joint policy paper looking at how the FCA's new rules on pension transfer advice will affect the DB to DC pension transfers. From 1 October, financial advisers are obliged to show their clients how the transfer value they have been offered by their company pension scheme compares with an estimate of the lump sum needed today to buy an equivalent pension at retirement to the one being given up. Key findings from the research show that for savers ten years away from retirement, the transfer value will on average be around 55% of the 'full value' of the pension they have given up.

Fiscal Sustainability Report

Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR)
Jul 2018 United Kingdom Longevity, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), State Pensions, Taxation
The latest Fiscal Sustainability Report from the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) reveals lower spending on state pensions across most of the projection period, reflecting slightly accelerated increases to the state pension age and lower mortality assumptions, partly offset by the assumption of a higher triple lock premium. Spending on state pensions is projected to rise over the long term, from 5.0% of GDP in 2022-23 to 6.9% of GDP in 2067-68, driven largely by demographic trends.

Willis Towers Watson has published the 2018 edition of its Defined Benefit Survey, in which it analyses how pension scheme decision makers feel about significant developments relating to DB pensions over the last 12 months, such the government's DB pensions White Paper and increased interest in DB consolidation. According to the report, only 43% of trustees believe that commercial consolidators would significantly improve the efficiency of UK DB pensions, although 38% recognise that consolidating DB schemes into a Pension 'Super Fund' would appeal 'very strongly' to corporate sponsors.
