Who Watches the Watchers? Transparency and Accountability in Workplace Personal Pensions
Policy Report
ShareAction
Feb 2018 United Kingdom Advisers, Corporate Governance, Investment - Performance
Research by ShareAction has found that a large proportion of independent governance committees (IGCs), which were established by law in 2015 to represent the interests of UK pension savers, are failing to review whether savers are getting value for money from their schemes. According to the research, just under half of IGC reports did not provide data on how well savers' investments were performing, while almost a third did not state how much savers were being charged by their workplace pension provider.
