The Government published its much anticipated white paper ‘Protecting Defined Benefit Pension Schemes’ on Monday 19 March. Here we outline for employers the three main issues it addressed.
The Pensions Regulator released its 2018 annual funding statement, and once again risk management was high up its agenda. This is perhaps not surprising in light of recent high profile employer insolvencies and the resulting reduction in member benefits.
We carried out a survey that relates to constituent companies of the Spanish IBEX and Italian FTSE MIB share indices that have UK subsidiary companies with defined benefit (DB) pension schemes.

Now two years into freedom and choice in DC retirement savings, for members of a DB scheme making the most of these flexibilities will involve transferring to a DC arrangement. We provide an update on the lay of the land.

We have provided actuarial and investment services to a £20m pension scheme, whose sponsoring employer is a design and manufacturing company in the aerospace industry.
We were appointed to advise a client with ~£400m of assets in 2015 and this case study sets out how we worked with the trustees and employer to ultimately reduce risk and increase expected returns while working towards an agreed objective.
