4 Dec 2017 United Kingdom Advisers, Investment - General, Master Trusts, Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator, Scheme Amendment, State Pensions, 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:
  • Sir Brian Souter has said the way DB schemes invest does not “encourage enterprise and employment” as they are overweight in gilts and underweight in equities. Do you agree?;
  • What, in your view, has been the most important pensions story this year?;
  • Do you believe existing master trusts should or should not pay more for authorisation than new master trusts?;
  • Does the law for trustees and their advisers need to change to reflect the emerging consensus that climate change is a material financial risk for schemes?; and

  • What is the single biggest challenge for pensions in 2018?
