May 2019 United Kingdom Accounting, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Surpluses and Deficits
Lane Clark & Peacock (LCP) has published its 26th annual Accounting for Pensions report, which looks at FTSE 100 companies’ pension disclosures. The report revealed that the companies have continued to pay more in shareholder dividends than pension contributions, paying around £90bn in dividends, seven times more than the £13bn paid to pension schemes. The report also showed that, in line with wider de-risking trends and a waning appetite for pension risk, FTSE 100 companies have moved away from equities in favour of other asset classes.
