Master Trust Default Fund Performance Review
Master Trust Default Fund Performance Review
Hymans Robertson
Sep 2018 United Kingdom Investment - General, Investment - Performance, Master Trusts, Scheme Issues & Trends
Hymans Robertson has published a report comparing the investment performance of the default funds used by the largest providers of master trusts. The report looks at performance across three separate stages of DC investing with differing investment requirements, which it terms the "growth phase", the "consolidation phase" and the "pre-retirement phase". According to the report's findings, the past year has seen low returns for master trust providers in their default funds, with a median return of just 1.5% for funds in the growth phase and 1.2% for funds in the consolidation phase. The research has also found that in relation to default funds in the growth phase, there is a difference in the returns received by the best and worst performing providers of 6% per annum over three years, which it estimates could mean a 10% difference in the value of those providers' members' DC pension pots.

Defined contribution trust-based pension schemes research
The Pensions Regulator (TPR)
Sep 2018 United Kingdom Administration, Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Scheme Issues & Trends
TPR has published research which summarises the findings of its annual survey of trust-based occupational DC pension schemes, carried out between January and March 2018. According to the research, the trustees of just one in ten small schemes and one in three medium schemes are doing everything which TPR believes is necessary to assess value for members. TPR has also published the findings from its thematic review into value for members in small and micro pension schemes. According to the findings, the majority of the chair statements reviewed failed to provide adequate or complete explanations of how the scheme's costs and charges represent good value for members.

Maximising Value in DB
Maximising Value in DB
Hymans Robertson
Sep 2018 United Kingdom Investment - General, Surpluses and Deficits
Hymans Robertson has published a report looking at ways in which DB schemes could reduce their deficits. According to the report's findings, the current UK DB £500bn deficit could be halved if schemes explored alternative opportunities to create value across the "three pillars of value creation" identified by the consultancy. The three pillars relate to identifying a long term objective, adopting an efficient strategy which maximises every opportunity to create additional value, and pursuing operational effectiveness, for example through technology and the adoption of alternative governance structures.

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?
