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:

  • Is TPR at risk of becoming overstretched by the planned additional powers and broadening remit as outlined in the DB white paper?;
  • Is the government right in planning to force firms to issue a 'statement of intent' highlighting how a sponsor will mitigate the effects on a DB scheme ahead of a corporate sale or takeover?;
  • Was the government right in refraining from allowing schemes that have RPI hard-wired in their rules to switch to a different inflation measure?; and
  • Do the coverage and timing elements of TPR's notifiable events framework need reviewing, as the government plans to do?

How would removal of the State Pension triple lock affect adequacy?
How would removal of the State Pension triple lock affect adequacy?
Pensions Policy Institute (PPI)
21 Mar 2018 United Kingdom Pensioners & Retirement, Pension Reform, State Pensions
The Pensions Policy Institute (PPI) has published a report examining the impact that removing the triple lock on the state pension would have on pensioner poverty, the adequacy of pensions and state spending. It has found that although the triple lock costs the Government more in the long-term, it is the most effective of the possible indexation scenarios in terms of providing pensioners with an adequate basic level of income. The PPI estimates that by 2050 the proportion of pensioners in poverty could be 1% higher under a double lock, and 4% higher under an earnings link.

Data Bulletin: Issue 12
FCA Data Bulletin
Financial Conduct Authority (FCA)
20 Mar 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Savings, Scheme Issues & Trends
The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has published the latest issue of its quarterly Data Bulletin. In Issue 12, it focuses on developments in the pensions and retirement income market. In the bulletin the FCA analyses market data from the fifth update to the Retirement Income Data Request (RIDR) alongside data about consumer attitudes towards and experiences of retirement saving it gathered from the Financial Lives Survey, which was published in October 2017. On the basis of its combined analysis the FCA concluded that although a lot of activity is taking place within the pensions and retirement income sector, it is clear that consumers are lacking confidence in and understanding of their retirement choices.

Gender pay gap extends to pension freedoms
AJ Bell
20 Mar 2018 United Kingdom Annuities and Income Drawdown, Equality
According to research published by AJ Bell, a gender gap exists in the value of personal pension savings and awareness of the pension freedoms.

It also identified that men are more likely to feel in control of their retirement income and have greater awareness of issues such as pension freedoms, while women are more likely to worry about paying for long term care and having income left from their pension to pass on to family members.
