4 Apr 2018 United Kingdom Advisers, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Scheme Issues & Trends, Transfers, Trustees
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:
  • During a triennial valuation, if a trustee calculation of a DB funding deficit is greater than that calculated by the employer, should companies be required to move closer to the trustees' valuation?;
  • Given that DB scheme funding positions are volatile, are current actuarial valuations of deficits worth worrying about?;
  • Is the FCA right to retain its rule that advisers on defined benefit transfers should start with the assumption that transfers would be unsuitable?;
  • Do you think The Pensions Regulator is striking the right balance in its approach to enforcement?; and
  • Should schemes be required to re-tender for advisers after a fixed period?

Retirement Sentiment Index: Surviving Market Volatility
Retirement Sentiment Index
Retirement Advantage
Apr 2018 United Kingdom Longevity, Pensioners & Retirement, Savings
Retirement Advantage has published the latest edition of its Retirement Sentiment Index report series, revealing a significant shift in the attitudes of over 50s towards financial risk and flexibility in response to market volatility. The report shows a decline in the proportion of over 50s who view flexibility as an important factor when thinking about their retirement income from 36% in June 2017 to 28% in March 2018, while the percentage of respondents that valued certainty remained stable over the same period. According to the company's findings over 50s are also significantly underestimating their life expectancy, which it warns could leave retirees in a difficult financial position later in life as their pension pots become overstretched.
