What will the FCA's new rules mean for DB to DC pension transfers?
What will the FCA's new rules mean for DB to DC pension transfers?
LCP and Royal London
Oct 2018 United Kingdom Advisers, Regulatory Bodies (excl. tPR), Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Transfers
Lane Clark & Peacock and Royal London have published a joint policy paper looking at how the FCA's new rules on pension transfer advice will affect the DB to DC pension transfers. From 1 October, financial advisers are obliged to show their clients how the transfer value they have been offered by their company pension scheme compares with an estimate of the lump sum needed today to buy an equivalent pension at retirement to the one being given up. Key findings from the research show that for savers ten years away from retirement, the transfer value will on average be around 55% of the 'full value' of the pension they have given up.
