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.

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:
  • Is too much responsibility put onto the saver when it comes to protecting themselves from scams?;
  • What should the Government’s main priority for auto-enrolment be?;
  • Despite AE now securing 10 million workers, low-earners are still not covered by the initiative. Does this undermine its long-term success?;
  • Amber Rudd has warned individuals could face up to seven years in prison for reckless mismanagement of employees’ pensions. Is this justified?;
  • Should the DWP allow schemes to increase the proportion of member-nominated trustees (MNTs) to 50% of the trustee board?; and
  • Should schemes be allowed to substitute professional trustees for MNTs?

How to harness CEO self-interest to protect pensions
Warwick Business School
12 Feb 2019 United Kingdom Executive Pensions, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Scheme Issues & Trends
A study conducted by researchers at Warwick Business School, the University of Exeter Business School and Queen Mary University of London has found that forcing executives to become members of the same pension plan as their staff could protect DB schemes from closure. The research looked at the pension arrangements of all 322 publicly listed UK firms that offered a DB scheme between 1999 and 2013, and found that CEOs were 77% less likely to close their company's main DB scheme if they were a member of the scheme and a trustee of the plan, even if it was in deficit.

Investment Company Institute (ICI)

ICI has published a study looking at the views of individuals that own DC pension plans on DC plan characteristics.

The study also found that more than 75% of Americans have confidence in the ability of 401(k)s and other DC retirement accounts to help individuals meet their retirement goals.

Managing Uncertainty: The Search for a Golden Discount-Rate Rule for Defined-Benefit Pensions
C D Howe Institute
Jan 2019 Canada Countries - excl. European Union and US, Public Sector Pensions, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Surpluses and Deficits
The CD Howe Institute has published a paper revealing that public sector pensions are using risky projections to calculate their future liabilities. The study shows that pension fund sponsors use a discount rate to determine the value of assets they must set aside for future benefits. If the rate is too high, the assets can be too meagre, and vice versa. The report examines whether there is an optimum discount-rate rule that finds the right balance.
