Pensions Buzz
Pensions Buzz
Professional Pensions
31 Oct 2017 United Kingdom Investment - General, Regulatory Bodies - the Pensions Regulator
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:
  • Should there be a ‘career MOT' at age 50 to help workers plan for retirement, both in terms of pension funds and a transition from working life?;
  • Are you concerned that more investment cost and charge disclosure will lead to distrust in pensions when members see reported costs increase?
  • Does TPR have adequate resources and powers to go after micro-employers that miss their staging dates?;
  • Would an increased focus on bringing down fees mean a reduced focus on investment quality?; and
  • Do pension funds, if they are minority shareholders, tend to be side-lined at company board meetings by majority ones?
